Abstract

Ni/Co-modified aluminide coatings were prepared on Hastelloy-X superalloy by a combined process of electrodeposition and slurry aluminizing. In this regard, pure layers of Ni and Ni-50wt.%Co were initially applied via electrodeposition process and successive aluminization was carried out by a slurry technique. The microstructural and chemical composition characterization of the specimens revealed that a compact and dense aluminide coating was formed with two-layered structure containing the outer Al-rich b phase and inner interdiffusion zone. Moreover, the presence of pre-electrodeposited layers inhibited the outward diffusion flux of elements from the substrate and effectively suppressed the formation of Kirkendall pores. The hot corrosion studies of the obtained coatings indicated that the addition of a pre-electrodeposited layer could enhance the high-temperature corrosion performance of the coatings when exposed to sulfate salt.
