Hot Corrosion Behavior of AlCuFeCr Quasicrystalline Coating on Titanium Alloy with the Mixture of NaCl and Na2SO4 Deposit


Article Preview

The hot corrosion behavior of titanium alloy and AlCuFeCr quasicrystalline coating on titanium alloy in the presence of a solid mixture of NaCl and Na2SO4 deposit at 700°C was studied. The result shows that weight-gain kinetics for titanium alloy exhibited a linear rate law, while the kinetics of AlCuFeCr quasicrystalline coating displayed parabolic growth rate. The corrosion resistance of the titanium alloy was improved by applying the AlCuFeCr quasicrystalline coating. The corrosive oxide morphology formed on titanium alloy was porous. For AlCuFeCr quasicrystalline coating with the mixture of NaCl and Na2SO4 deposit, the scale formed on the coating surface was compact and uniform. Oxide formed on the surfaces of Al-Cu-Fe-Cr quasicrystalline coatings after hot corrosion consisted of Al2O3.
