Nickel-based superalloys have been used in the gas turbine hot section components for their outstanding mechanical properties at elevated temperatures. Increasing the alloy strength at high temperature is usually achieved at the expense of the alloy’s environmental stability. Oxidation and high heat flux could be limiting factors in the use of these alloys at temperatures above 1800°F. To help overcome these limitations, protective coatings can be applied to the alloy surfaces to provide oxidation and hot corrosion resistance. These coatings are applied to alloys which can be produced in various forms such as equiaxed, directionally solidified or single crystals with varying chemistries. Elemental additions such as hafnium, rhenium, etc. are added to promote the strengthening of these alloys, and could result in varying effects on the coatability and coating performance. This paper discusses the effects of various substrate elements on the processing and stability of diffusion platinum aluminide coatings.
