The main goal of the combined Cold Spray – Sintering technology development is to obtain high density ductile Fe- Al intermetallics based thermal barrier coatings as an alternative to conventional ZrO2 coatings widely applied in industry. The task of this paper is to examine the structural changes of cold sprayed Al-AISI 316L composite coatings due to synthesis of Fe-Al intermetallics during annealing and find the conditions of high density composite formation. A dense Fe/Al intermetallic-Al composite coating is obtained. Three factors are found to play the main role in the structure formation of dense Fe-Al intermetallic composite coating: i) layered structure, ii) particle size and thickness of Fe and Al layers, iii) annealing temperature.
