Abstract (en)

Disclosed is a noble metal bond coat of a thermal barrier coating system useful for enhancing adhesion of a ceramic topcoat to a superalloy substrate. The bond coat includes about 10 to 30 weight percent aluminum, about 2 to 60 weight percent noble metal, between trace amounts and about 3 weight percent of a reactive element selected from the group consisting of yttrium, zirconium, hafnium, scandium, all the lanthanides, and mixtures thereof, and balance selected from the group consisting of nickel, cobalt, iron and mixtures thereof, wherein the bond coat is further characterized by absence of added chromium. One method includes plasma spraying a prealloyed powder of the bond coat composition on the substrate followed by alumina formation and ceramic topcoat deposition. Uses include thermal barrier coating systems on gas turbine engine hot section components such as turbine blade and vane airfoils, combustors, and exhaust nozzles.
