In this paper the influence on the coating generation of substrate preheating during spraying, relative movements torch to substrate and cooling conditions is systematically studied for partially stabilized zirconia and alumina coatings. Beads and coatings are sprayed with Ar-H2 dc plasma jets in air. The obtained structure, resulting hardness and adhesion/cohesion for each spraying condition is discussed.
