This paper examines the stress state of plasma-sprayed amorphous coatings of Fe-B with additions of Ni, Cr, and Mo. Internal stresses depend on the type of plasma gas used, the thickness and composition of the coating, and the material and temperature of the substrate. In this study, additional cooling of the substrate was found to be the most efficient way to reduce internal stresses. Amorphous coatings were also found to improve fatigue strength by as much as 25-30%, which is attributed to the formation of compressive stresses in the coating layers adjoining the substrate.
