Corrosion and Oxidation Protection of Ti6Al4V Alloy by an Inorganic Metal Modified Silicate Composite Coating
An inorganic metal modified silicate composite coating was developed to protect the corrosion and oxidation of Ti6Al4V alloy at 650°C. The properties of the coatings were investigated by oxidation and corrosion experiments, and the microstructure of the coatings was studied by SEM. The isothermal oxidation results indicated that the Ti6Al4V alloy suffered serious oxidation after exposed for 100h at 650°C and the mass of the alloy gained almost lineally, while the coated alloy had almost no mass gain and the coatings keep intact after oxidation. The salt spray test for 20h and oxidation at 650°C for 2h was carried out to investigate the corrosion and oxidation properties of the coatings. The results indicated that the alloy experienced serious corrosion after experiment for 20 cycles, while the coated alloy did not corrode after the experiments. The thermal shock experiments indicated that the coatings could withstand 50 times thermal shock when kept for 5min at 700°C and then immediately put into 3.5%NaCl solution at room temperature.
