  4. Abstract:
  5. In the present work, the hot corrosion behavior of two types of multilayer plasma sprayed TBC were investigated and compared with functionally graded and conventional TBCs. These kinds of multilayer coatings consisted of nano/μ alumina as a top coat on YSZ layer, a metallic bond coat and a functionally graded intermediate layer deposited between YSZ and bond coat layers. All the layers were sprayed on the Ni-base super alloy substrate. The hot corrosion resistance of the plasma sprayed coatings was examined at 1050 °C for 40 h, using a fused mixture of 45 wt% Na2SO4 + 55wt%V2O5. Before and after hot corrosion, the microstructure and phase analysis of the coating were studied using scanning electron microscope and X-ray diffractometer. The results showed that, the Al2O3 top layer acted as a barrier against the infiltration of the molten salt into the YSZ layer during exposure to the molten salt mixture at the high temperature and the multilayer coatings of zirconia/alumina with the nanostructured alumina as a top coat showed higher hot corrosion resistance. Also, the failure mechanisms of the functionally graded coating and duplex TBC were investigated. The spallation occurred between the graded layer and the bond coat/top coat in functionally graded TBC and duplex TBC, respectively. © 2016 Elsevier B.V
