AbstractMaterial deterioration due to erosion and oxidation in high-temperature environments is a major cause of wear in power plants, aircraft engines and petrochemical industries. NiCrSiB based surface coatings using thermal spray techniques such as High-Velocity Oxy-Fuel (HVOF) offer a cost-effective route to improve the tribological properties for a range of substrate materials. The study investigates the high-temperature oxidation and erosion resistance of HVOF coated NiCrSiB reinforced with Al2O3 and WC single bond Co on SS304 stainless steel substrate. The oxidation kinetics and erosion responses of the coatings at 750 °C were evaluated for a period of 160 hrs and the coating microstructure, morphology and chemical compositions characterised. A total of three coating compositions were studied namely: NiCrSiB/Al2O3, NiCrSiB/n-Al2O3 and NiCrSiB/WC single bond Co where the results indicate a superior oxidation and erosion resistance in all cases in comparison to uncoated SS304. However, it was found that the NiCrSiB reinforced with micro-structured Al2O3 outperformed all the other coatings in terms of oxidation resistance. When it comes to erosion resistance, NiCrSiB/WC single bond Co was found to demonstrate the highest performance.
