The development of corrosion resistant sprayed coating without sealing is required to increase reliability of the thermal spray coating method and to expand the field of application for the wet corrosion environments. The conventional wire flame sprayed Al coating on the steel substrate without sealing has poor resistance against aqueous corrosion, so as to be restricted in use in practical fields. A duplex coating composed of sprayed Al on a 80Ni-20Cr alloy undercoat was proven to have sufficient resistance in a hot, near neutral aqueous environment through a trial use in a vegetable oil process. In this paper, mechanism of the corrosion resistance of the duplex coating is clarified by electrochemical measurements of the corrosion potential and the anodic polarization characteristics.
