Title

Application of a nickel silicide based alloy as a plasma sprayed coating for corrosion resistance to aerated sulfuric acid solutions

Keywords and Phrases

Binary nickel silicide

Abstract

"Binary nickel silicide, ß₁-Ni₃S, is an ordered intermetallic compound with L1₂ (cP4) atomic structure. It has demonstrated corrosion resistance to aqueous sulfuric acid solutions, however a primary limitation of the binary Beta₁-Ni₃Si compound is low ductility leading to poor formability. Because of the desired property of corrosion resistance, a substantial amount of work has been done to develop alloys based on the binary nickel silicide with enhanced mechanical formability, while maintaining acceptable corrosion resistance. The work done in this thesis utilizes an alloy that was developed as part of this effort. This alloy has excellent corrosion resistance, but low ductility and machinability, thus making it a good candidate for application as a coating"--Introduction, leaf 1.
