Electrochemical ZrO2 and Al2O3 coatings on SiC substrates
- 167 Downloads
SiC was electrochemically coated with ZrO2 and with Al2O3 from 0.1 m aqueous solutions of metal-nitrate-hydrates with ethanol added. Amorphous zirconia and alumina coatings were formed with current densities from 10 to 70 mA cm−2, and deposition durations of 1–60 min. The as-deposited coatings contained microcracks caused by drying shrinkage. Sintering of zirconia at 900 °C for 1 h and of alumina at 1200 °C for 2 h in air was accompanied by crystallization to a mixture of tetragonal and monoclinic phases in the former and to α-alumina in the latter. The absence of intermediate phases between the coatings and the substrates and the good adherence of the sintered coatings indicate the high-temperature stability of these coatings.
