In this study, detonation spraying was used to deposit commercially available Ni-20Cr and WC-Co powders on SA213-T22 boiler steel. Coated and uncoated specimens were subjected to 50 thermal cycles in a molten salt boiler environment 900 °C in order to evaluate their hot corrosion behavior. Mass change measurements were made at the end of each cycle to assess corrosion kinetics and XRD and SEM/EDS were used to characterize corrosion products. An analysis of the reaction kinetics and the formation of oxide scales is provided in the paper.
