: : We are experiencing spalling of a plasma sprayed TiO2 coatings on to a 316 stainless steel shaft(mining industry.Temperature doesn't exceed 60 C. Bonding material is NiAl or AlBronze applied via arc spraying.Coating thickness of TiO2 is 0.3mm and sealing is accomplished via Microseal.
: : How would a NiCrCr2C3 type Tafa 1375VM work here?
: : Any suggestions for improving the sealer?
: : Thank you

: Hi John

: If you want to stick with plasma sprayed oxide ceramic coatings I would suggest changing to alumina or chromium oxide as titania can be attacked by sulphuric acid. Also, changing the underlay/bond coat material to something like Hastelloy C would also help.

: HVOF coatings based on chromium carbide would certainly be worth trying.

: Even with HVOF coatings, you can not guarantee 100% against permeation of the environment through the coating without sealing. If the environment contains no hydrocarbon solvents or oils and the max temperature is lower than 80 C I would consider using a microcrystalline wax sealer. Simple melt into the coating directly after application of coating (while still hot).
