This study examines the oxidation performance of two different iron aluminide coatings obtained by means of High Velocity Oxygen Fuel spraying starting from the same feedstock powder but using propylene and hydrogen as fuels. The isothermal oxidation tests were carried out at 900°C for 4, 36 and 72 hours. After detailed observation a more rapid oxide scale growth is obtained for that coating obtained under hydrogen conditions. It leads to the assertion that propylene-coatings would perform better under high temperature environments.
