Thermal sprayed coatings of polypenylene-sulphide (PPS) and polyphenyletherether-ketone (PEEK) have been produced by HVAF spray system. The properties of these coatings have been investigated by corrosion test and FT-IR analysis. The main results of this study are summarized as follows; (1) In case of PPS coatings, PPS powder is oxidized during thermal spraying. However, PPS coatings have a good corrosion resistance. However, PEEK coatings have high porosity so that corrosion of the substrate occurs. (2) In case of PEEK coatings, the molecular structure of PEEK powder is not changed during thermal spraying.
