A New High Temperature Resistant Glass–Ceramic Coating Material
A new glass-ceramic coating material on nickel based super alloy substrate had been found, the glass¬-ceramic coating material was developed from a glass based on MgO–Al2O3–TiO2 system. The coating material was characterized through X-ray diffractometry (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), hardness, thermal expansion coefficient testing. XRD analysis of the coating materials and the resultant coatings showed presence of a number of microcrystalline phases. SEM micrographs indicated microstructure of the material. Optical micrographs showed smooth glossy impervious free surface with defects. Hardness analysis showed the glass-ceramic coating material had higher microhardness. The thermal expansion coefficient of the nimonic alloy was much higher compared to the coating material at specific temperature.
