Use of Silicon-Based Coating for High Temperature Protection of Metallic Alloys
This contribution presents results which show the possibility to develop protective coatings from perhydropolysilazane (PHPS) on low carbon steel. In order to have an effective protection, the pyrolysis conditions should be carefully controlled. Nanoindentation tests allow characterizing the mechanical resistance of the coating after different pyrolysis conditions. The pyrolysis of coated samples has also been monitored by acoustic emission; the results show that the structural conversion of the coating from polymer to ceramics can be detected by acoustic emission.
