The aim of this work is to determine whether local disordering plays a role in the bonding of FeAl intermetallic coatings produced by cold spraying. XRD analysis of the powder and coatings revealed superlattice peaks, indicative of an ordered intermetallic structure. Nevertheless, locally disordered structures were detected in the deposits by TEM imaging. This may be related to a deformation induced order-to-disorder transformation due to the high strains involved in cold spraying, which is supported by comparing the magnetic properties of the deposits with those of HVOF sprayed coatings produced using disordered ball-milled feedstock.
