Abstract

The microstructure of bond coat was optimized by controlling coating parameters, such as spray distances, the gas flow ratio of air/oxygen/hydrogen, gun speed, and step distance, in high-velocity oxy-fuel process, and the effects of coating parameters on the microstructure and thermomechanical properties were investigated. When the spray distance to the substrate shortened, the microstructure became dense and the hardness values were increased. As the amount of hydrogen increased in the fixed gas flow ratio, defects such as global pores and oxides were increased and the hardness values were decreased, showing a similar trend in oxygen. The bond coat with the step distance of 8. mm showed a slightly higher hardness value than that with the step distance of 5. mm, indicating that the gun speed did not have much effect on the hardness value. However, in thermal diffusivity, the bond coat with the step distance of 5. mm showed lower values than that with the step distance of 8. mm. The optimum coating parameters could be proposed in HVOF process.
