The gas turbine blades in a severe environment are overlaid with MCrAlY coatings by Low Pressure Plasma Spray (LPS) process for protection against hot corrosion. However, the service life of each blade is limited by damage due to embrittlement layer, which is formed by reaction diffusion at the interface between the coating and the substrate. Reaction diffusion behavior between the CoNiCrAlY coatings and substrates was investigated. In addition, high-temperature oxidation behavior of the CoNiCrAlY coating by LPS was evaluated. The CoNiCrAlY coatings for reaction diffusion test were carried out by 3 kinds of spray process (LPS, High Velocity Oxygen Fuel Spray: HVOF, Atmospheric Plasma Spray: APS) on 2 kinds of substrate (Directional Solidification and Single Crystal Ni-based super alloys). It has been found that the CoNiCrAlY coating by APS inhibited the reaction diffusion at the boundary of the coating and the base material as compared with LPS coating. It was also confirmed that the protective dense layer of aluminum oxide against hot corrosion was formed in the surface of the CoNiCrAlY coatings by LPS.
