High temperature degradation by hot corrosion 650-1000 C andor oxidation 1000 C can severely reduce the longevity of advanced gas turbine engine components. The protection of high-temperature components against hot corrosion or oxidation is typically conferred by the application of either a diffusion or overlay metallic coating that is able to form a continuous, adherent, and slow growing oxide scale. There are currently no coatings that provide adequate protection to both hot corrosion and oxidation. This study assesses and advances the performance of novel modified gamma-Ni. gamma-prime Ni3Al alloys and coatings. Significant progress was achieved in this study towards the targeted goal of establishing a metallic coating that is highly resistant to both hot corrosion and high temperature oxidation.
