Plasma spraying of aluminum-based glass forming alloys
Plasma spraying of aluminum based glass forming alloys
"Metallic glass alloys possess superior corrosion resistance in comparison with the crystalline state of the same alloy due to their chemical and non-crystalline structural homogeneity. The high critical quenching rate required for synthesizing metallic glass alloys demands innovative engineering solutions to allow the commercial production of metallic glass alloys as structural materials. The purpose of this research is to produce aluminum-based amorphous metallic coatings on aluminum alloy plates using an atmospheric plasma spray (APS) technique to form the corrosion resistant barrier coating. The corrosion resistance of APS coatings tested in a neutral salt-fog chamber showed that the coating performance was dependent on the crystallinity, coating permeability and composition"--Abstract, leaf iii.
