By use of homemade arc spraying system patented, which could make melted metal droplets atomized fully and make its flying velocity achieve ultrasonic velocity, TiAl alloy coatings were manufactured on the aluminum alloy (LY12) substrate surface. The slide wear resistance of TiAl alloy coatings was investigated. The effect of spraying parameters, coatings' chemical composition and microstructure on the slide-wear resistance of coatings was examined. Then the slide-wear mechanism of the coatings was discussed. The results showed that the slide wear resistance of TiAl alloy coatings by ultrasonic arc sprayed is 17 times higher than it of the aluminum alloy (LY12) substrate under the condition of dry slide-wear.
