Effect of Plasma Spraying Gas on Microstructure and Properties of 95vol.%Al2O3–5vol.%SiC Nanocomposite Coatings
Based on the strong inhibition of SiC particles on the grain growth of the Αl2O3 matrix, a mixture powder of α-Al2O3 and SiC was used as feedstock to deposit the nanocomposite coatings by plasma spraying. To determine the effect of plasma spraying gas on microstructure and mechanical properties of Al2O3–SiC nanocomposite coatings, primary Ar gas and secondary H2 gas were chosen, which have an effect on temperature and velocity of the flyingpowders at the time of impacting on substrate. The X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) were used to characterize the microstructures of these coatings. Surface roughness was measured also.
