HVOF-sprayed CoNiCrAlYSi coatings were tested at 900 °C in a hot corrosion environment containing sodium–potassium sulphates. The HVOF spraying caused the typical splat-on-splat structure. The results after the hot corrosion testing showed that the corrosion preferentially occurred at the coating surface and the splat boundaries. The oxidation along the splat boundaries can isolate the splat from the underlying coating matrix. In those isolated splats or coating parts, internal oxidation and nitridation of Al took place, following that the Al-depleted coating fragments were then oxidized to spinels. For those coatings which had a worse splat boundary quality (i.e. with higher porosity and intersplat oxides) or had a worse coating surface quality (i.e. with more small coating fragments therefore more interfaces), heavier corrosion attack was observed on those coatings due to the corrosion of the splats or the coating fragments. The results indicated that the as-sprayed coating quality including porosity and surface morphology was important for the hot-corrosion resistance of the coatings.
