Original Paper


The oxidation and hot corrosion performance of NiCoCrAlY coatings fabricated via electrolytic codeposition was investigated. The cyclic oxidation behavior of NiCoCrAlY coatings on Ni-based superalloys was evaluated at 1000 and 1100 °C. Preliminary Type I hot corrosion testing was conducted to assess the hot corrosion resistance of these coatings in a Dean rig with flowing O2 + 0.1% SO2 gas. NiAl coatings synthesized by a non-contact pack cementation method were included in the oxidation and corrosion tests for comparison. The NiAl coatings exhibited excellent oxidation resistance; however, they showed very poor hot corrosion performance at 900 °C. The electro-codeposited NiCoCrAlY coatings demonstrated good overall resistance to both cyclic oxidation and hot corrosion and also showed better chemical/microstructural compatibility with the superalloy substrates.
