Static mechanical properties such as Young's Modulus, Yield Stress and Ultimate Tensile Strength and especially fatigue behavior are important material properties for thermal spray coatings and their industrial application in automotive and aerospace industry. The static and dynamic mechanical properties of Al-Si, Al-Sn, Fe-Cr and Fe-Cr-B based coating materials deposited by APS, TWAS and HVOF were investigated by nanoindentation and in a three point bending test using DMA (Dynamic Mechanical Analysis). This method permits the determination of pure coating material static and dynamic mechanical properties without substrate influence over a wide temperature range. In this investigation all measurements were carried out at room temperature. The DMA method was verified by comparison of Young's modulus to those obtained by nanoindentation.
