Thermal sprayed ceramic coatings are well used as the electrode of corona discharge treatment in order to modify the surface of many kinds of films and papers due to its superior durability and adaptability. Some kinds of Al2O3-TiO2 were sprayed by APS on the parallel plate electrodes, and output power of corona discharge generated by the electrodes was measured by using Sawyer-Tower circuit. In addition, discharge output power was calculated with an equivalent circuit of corona discharge. By comparing them, effects of the electrical property of the coating on discharge was researched. As a result, the electrostatic capacitance of the coatings influences the impedance of the whole circuit, and higher relative permittivity of the coating brought higher output power in a constant voltage.
