Preparation and Characterization of Advanced Thermally-sprayed Coatings on Magnesium Alloys
Buchtík, Martin ; Hadzima, Branislav (referee) ; Fintová, Stanislava (referee) ; Ptáček, Petr (advisor)
The proposed dissertation thesis deals with the characterization of HVOF and APS-thermally sprayed coatings prepared on the AZ31 and AZ91 magnesium substrates. The theoretical part of the thesis describes in-detail Mg substrates used in the experimental part of the thesis. There are also characterized materials and coatings based on NiCrAlY and FeCrNiMoSiC metals, WC-CoCr cermets, and YSZ ceramic materials. At the end of the theoretical part, the literary research summarizing the characterization and analysis performed on thermally sprayed coatings on Mg alloys. Based on the theoretical knowledge, the characterization of Mg substrates and deposited coatings was performed in terms of the surface morphology, microstructure, and the chemical composition using the light microscopy (LM) and scanning electron microscopy with energy-dispersive spectroscopy (SEM+EDS). The phase composition of the coatings was analyzed using the X-ray diffraction (XRD). The diffractions corresponding to the sprayed coatings were compared with the feedstock powders, i.e. materials used for the spraying of the coatings. The characterization of the prepared coatings in terms of the mechanical and tribological properties was performed. The hardness and microhardness of the coatings as well as the coefficient of friction, and the wear rate were measured. The last chapter of the experimental part deals with the evaluation of the electrochemical corrosion properties by the potentiodynamic measurements in a 3.5% NaCl solution. In the case of exposed samples, the evaluation of the surface and coating/substrate interface was performed using LM and SEM with EDS. The mechanism of the corrosion attack and degradation was determined from the acquired knowledge and base on the results of the short-term measurements. Based on the measured results, it can be stated that the deposited coatings were successfully applied on the surface of both Mg alloys. All the coatings increase the surface hardness of the Mg alloys and significantly improve their tribological properties. However, except for FeCrNiMoSiC coatings, the corrosion properties of Mg alloys deteriorate due to the fact that the corrosion environment can pass through the coating to the less noble Mg substrate and the corrosion microcells are created.
Thermal spray by electric arc
Eliáš, Vojtěch ; Sigmund, Marián (referee) ; Kubíček, Jaroslav (advisor)
This thesis deals with the issue of thermal spraying by means of an electric arc. First of all, a theoretical part is processed using a literary study dealing with corrosion and thermal spraying technology. The experimental part contains a description of the technological procedure and evaluation of four thermally sprayed samples. Zinacor 850, consisting of 85% zinc and 15% aluminum, was used as a coating. The evaluation involves measurements of thickness, adhesion and roughness as well as the macro-structural analysis of the coating. Two samples showed unusually low adhesion, and all samples also had a large fluctuation of the measured thicknesses. This was also confirmed by the macro-structural analysis, which showed that the sample with low adhesion also had high porosity. These defects may have multiple causes, but the recommendation for further practice is to reduce the spraying distance from the base material.
Thermal spray coatings of bioceramics
Kašpárková, Kristýna ; Mrňa, Libor (referee) ; Kubíček, Jaroslav (advisor)
Bachelor´s thesis is focused on thermal spraying bioceramics. Bioceramic is designed to replace damaged parts of the human body. Practical use is mainly in orthopedics, jaw and facial surgery. This category of materials includes hydroxyapatite, which is characterized by biocompatibility and the ability to form a strong bond between the bone and the implant. The experimental part of the thesis was spraying 40 - pieces of dental implants for the company LASAK s.r.o. Plasma spraying technology was used to apply the hydroxyapatite coating. The required coating thickness was 60 m. The implant was sprayed and cleaned before spraying. Spraying was carried out in the laboratory of plasma coatings dental and skeletal implants ÚST FSI VUT Brno. A dimensional control was performed after plasma spraying.

Suspension plasma spraying of sub-stoichiometric titania by hybrid water/argon stabilized plasma torch
Mušálek, Radek ; Ctibor, Pavel ; Medřický, Jan ; Tesař, Tomáš ; Kotlan, Jiří ; Lukáč, František
In this study, suspension plasma spraying of sub-stoichiometric titania was attempted using hybrid water/argon stabilized plasma torch (WSP-H). Porous coatings with fine cauliflower-like columnar microstructure were successfully deposited in two separate experiments with different power levels of the plasma torch. In both cases, high solid-load content (40 wt. %) of the water-based suspension resulted in considerable coating thickness increase per deposition cycle. Coating annealing and partial remelting of the surface asperities were also achieved by additional pass of plasma torch in front of the coating surface. According to X-ray diffraction, all coatings consisted dominantly of rutile phase. Detailed microscopic observation of the as-sprayed and annealed deposits showed that the local coloration of the coating (ranging from dark blue to beige) was driven by the local overheating of the rough coating surface which could also promote the oxygen intake. Moreover, sample annealing was also observed to increase the sample reflectivity as observed by UV-VIS-NIR scanning spectrophotometry
Deposition of Titania from Solution by Hybrid Water-Stabilized Plasma Torch
Mušálek, Radek ; Medřický, Jan ; Tesař, Tomáš ; Kotlan, Jiří ; Lukáč, František
Thermal spraying with liquid feedstock presents a novel route for deposition of functional coatings. In this study, possibility of preparation of titania coatings from solution by hybrid water stabilized plasma torch is presented. Coatings were prepared from solution of titanium isopropoxide Ti[OCH(CH3)2]4 in anhydrous ethanol. Fragmentation of feedstock stream in the plasma jet was monitored by shadowgraphy. Deposition was carried out on steel samples mounted to the cooled rotating carousel. Cross-sectional images from SEM microscope showed successful formation of the deposit with dual morphology consisting of fine feather-like features combined with bigger droplets. X-ray diffraction revealed formation of nanometric rutile crystallites.
