Preparation and Testing of Corrosion- and Spatiation- Resistant Coatings

Performer: University of North Dakota

Project No: FE0007325

Program Background and Project Benefits

This project is designed to refine the evaporative metal bonding (EMB) method and determine if it results in increased lifetimes. Turbine materials research seeks to improve coating materials that will allow for higher temperature operation and increased durability leading to increased turbine efficiency and reduced maintenance. Specifically, this project will measure the diffusion rates of zinc, design heat treatments for bonding to CM247LC and Rene 80 superalloys, bond the corrosion and spallation resistant alloy to the substrates, and test them to determine if the improved process and modeling increases part lifetimes.
