The objective of this study is to develop an excellent corrosion resistant alloy for high temperature coating applications. The Si-containing alloys consisting of CoNiCrAlY and CrSi2 alloys with varying Si and Ni content respectively were prepared by spark plasma sintering (SPS) technique. The corrosion behavior of these alloys was investigated in the gas phase of air-(Na2SO4+25.7mass%NaCl) at elevated temperatures of 923, 1073 and 1273K. The results showed that CoNiCrAlY alloy with 30mass% Si content and CrSi2 alloy with 10mass% Ni content were the most effective materials for application in the gas phase of air-(Na2SO4+25.7mass%NaCl) due to the formation of protective Al2O3/SiO2 and SiO2 scale, respectively. Therefore, it is realized that CoNiCrAlY-30mass% Si and CrSi2-10mass% Si coating are very effective for improving of high temperature corrosion resistance of STBA21 steel.
