Yellow Spot on Thermal Barrier Coating
Hi friends

i have a issue to my thermal barrier coating for nozzle segment in GE gas turbine. after one day spray there are yellow spot on my coating. I am spraying with 7MC unit control and 3MB gun from Metco Sulzer, bond coat: AMDRY 962 and top coat: METCO 204 NSG

Could you help me, what is the reason of these yellow spots (dots) on coating?
From our experience inspector it is caused by uncleaned penetrant removal process, how about you guys??

I enclosed the images for your consideration. Your recommendation will help me a lot.
Thank you

RE: Yellow Spot on Thermal Barrier Coating
Did you finish (polish) the coating or is that as sprayed? If you used a die grinder to finish the coating and it had oil in it (as is normal for lubrication), then it could have been exhausted onto the coating.

I think the substrate is cast iron. And in its pores there are residues of hydrocarbons. Weakly annealed the surface. Sori might be wrong.

Hi,

Maybe the air used for cooling is polluted with oil.
