Hi Phdstudent

I've no experience of etching this particular coating. Normally most thermal spray coatings are not etched for metallography as most of the information needed can be gained from viewing just in the as-polished condition. The nature of thermal spray coatings tends to make etching very difficult and unpredictable. There are times however when etching can be useful for identifying features not resolved in the as-polished condition.

What specific features are you trying to reveal, that don't show with viewing in the as-polished condition?

I can only think of experimenting with etching solutions based around Kalings No2, Kellers and Murakami's. Electro-etching, heat tinting and careful use of relief polishing (mechanical etching) may also be worth considering. Note of caution Mad0233 please be very careful with many of these chemicals particularly if experimenting ( Ashamed0002 experience can be painful Happy0193)

Thank you Gordon for your replayBig Grin

Actually, I wanna do etching to recognize the remelting area for (T800 Hvof coating) by laser, because, the borders for the remelting regions not clear.Exclamation

Thank you again
