Environmental barrier coatings (EBCs) with a Si bond coat, a yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) top coat, and various intermediate coats were investigated. EBCs were processed by atmospheric pressure plasma spraying. The EBC durability was determined by thermal cycling tests in water vapor at 1300°C and 1400°C, and in air at 1400°C and 1500°C. EBCs with a mullite (3Al2 O3 ·2SiO2 )+BSAS (1-xBaO·xSrO·Al2 O3 ·2SiO2 ) intermediate coat were more durable than EBCs with a mullite intermediate coat, while EBCs with a mullite/BSAS duplex intermediate coat resulted in inferior durability. The improvement with a mullite+BSAS intermediate coat was attributed to enhanced compliance of the intermediate coat due to the addition of a low modulus BSAS second phase. Mullite+BSAS/YSZ and BSAS/YSZ interfaces produced a low melting (<1400 °C) reaction product, which is expected to degrade the EBC performance by increasing the thermal conductivity. EBCs with a mullite+BSAS/graded mullite+YSZ intermediate coat showed the best durability among the EBCs investigated in this study. This improvement was attributed to diffused CTE mismatch stress and improved chemical stability due to the compositionally graded mullite+YSZ layer.
