Abstract:

The adverse operating environments encountered by marine gas turbine components has necessitated the development of various protective coating systems. Diffusion aluminide coatings have been used successfully for many years to enhance the hot corrosion resistance of turbine blades and vanes. Recently, it has been found that by modifying these standard aluminide coatings with a thin platinum underlay, significant improvements in high temperature corrosion resistance can be achieved. Using a laboratory furnace specifically modified to reproduce hot corrosion attack morphologies, the effects of selected platinum- aluminide coating deposition variables were investigated on two nickel-base superalloy substrates.
