Depth Sensing Indentation of Oxidized Plasma Sprayed CoNiCrAlY Coatings


The aim of the present work is to analyze the evolution of microstructural and mechanical properties of Air Plasma Sprayed (APS) CoNiCrAlY coatings after early stage high-temperature oxidation. Phase analysis and oxide scale characterization were performed by using X-Ray Diffraction (XRD). The microstructural features of CoNiCrAlY coat- ings were analyzed by Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), while Nanoindentation (NI) technique was employed to study the evolution of the mechanical properties.
