In the present study, surface engineering related to simultaneously thermally sprayed and laser melted corrosion resistant coatings has been carried out. A 6 kW high power diode laser or a Nd:YAG laser and a flame spray gun were used to construct the laser assisted thermal spraying system. The main aims of the study were to find out the optimal processing parameters and materials to create dense corrosion resistant coatings on steels. The corrosion resistance of the manufactured coatings was measured and the microstructure characterized using optical and scanning electron microscopy.
