Thermally sprayed coatings are produced from the repeated deposition of particles that are in the diameter range of 10 to 120 microns. The coating structure may be described as being of lamellar morphology. These coatings are used in high temperature, corrosion, tribological and component reclamation applications. This paper relates the material properties of coatings to their service performance. It is intended to establish criteria whereby the unique characteristics of thermally sprayed materials can be used to advantage.
