This work demonstrates a new single-cathode, multi-anode plasma spray process and compares it with conventional APS and HVOF spraying. Alumina feedstock powders mixed with 13, 40, and 44 wt% titania were deposited under a wide range of spraying conditions following a design of experiments approach. Deposition rate and efficiency were measured and coating characteristics, including microstructure, phase composition, hardness, Young’s modulus, electrical resistivity, and cavitation wear, are compared. The results are presented and the advantages of each process are discussed.
