Development and Oxidation of RexOy-Modified Aluminide Coating
Reactive reactive element oxide RexOy (Re=Ce, Y)-modified aluminide coatings have been developed by the first step of co-electrodeposition of Ni with CeO2 or Y2O3 particls on pure Ni and the subsequent step of diffusional aluminizing on electrodeposited Ni-CeO2/or Y2O3 composite films using pack cementation method at 1100OC for 4 hr. By comparison, aluminizing was also performed with the same condition on an as-deposited Ni film without RexOy particles. The oxidation in air at 900OC indicated that the RexOy (Re=Ce, Y)-modified aluminide coatings were profoundly oxidation resistance as compared to the RexOy (Re=Ce, Y)-free coatings. The effect of CeO2 or Y2O3 on the oxidation behavior is discussed in detail.
