In this work, alumina coatings are produced by atmospheric plasma spraying using dry-ice blasting to prepare substrate surfaces. Feedstock powder and coating microstructure are examined and dielectric strength and ac-dc breakdown voltages are measured. The results show that dry-ice blasting improves the dielectric properties of alumina coatings produced by atmospheric plasma spraying.
