Thermally grown oxide (TGO) that naturally forms on bond coat surfaces plays an important role in determining the lifetime of thermal barrier coatings (TBCs). Splashed particles on thermally sprayed MCrAlY bond coat surfaces are weakly bonded to the underlying bulk coating, leading to the formation of mixed oxides that contribute to TBC failure. In this study, various heat treatments are used to modify the weakly bonded splashed particles on LPPS CoNiCrAlY bond coats in order to restrain the formation of mixed oxides and prevent associated failures.
