Abstract : Conventional and platinum modified diffusion aluminide coatings on some state-of-theart single crystal and polycrystalline nickel-base superalloys have been compared in tests designed to establish conditions representative of those existing in gas turbines operating over a range of applications. Resistance of these coatings to oxidation, high temperature hot corrosion, and low temperature hot corrosion have been compared. Platinum has been found to significantly improve the resistance of diffusion aluminides to all of these forms of degradation but the improvement with regard to low temperature hot corrosion is not as great as in the case of the other two forms of attack. Substrate composition has been found to exert a very significant effect on the lives of coatings in the high temperature tests. In the case of high temperature oxidation elements such as Hf are important in that they extend coating lives whereas for high temperature hot corrosion the type and concentration of refractory elements are significant factors affecting coating lives. A limited number of experiments have indicated intermittent hot corrosion exposures degrade the subsequent cyclic oxidation resistance of Pt-aluminide coatings.
