Thermal cycling behaviour of thermal barrier coating systems based on first- and fourth-generation Ni-based superalloys

Abstract : This study deals with the cyclic oxidation behaviour of thermal barrier coating systems. The systems consist of an yttria-stabilised zircona ceramic top coat deposited by EB-PVD, a β-(Ni, Pt)Al bond coat and a Ni-based superalloy. Two different superalloys are studied: a first-generation one and a fourth-generation one containing Re, Ru and Hf. The aim of this work is to characterise the microstructural evolution of those systems and to correlate it to their resistance to spallation. Thermal cycling is carried out at 1100° C in laboratory air, with the number of cycles ranging between 10 and 1000. Each cycle consists of a 1 h dwell followed by forced-air cooling for 15 min down to room temperature. Among the main results of this work, it is shown that the MCNG-based system is significantly more resistant to spallation than the AM1-based one. Up to 50 cycles, both systems exhibit similar oxidation rate and phase transformations but major differences are observed after long-term ageing. In particular, a Ru-rich β-phase is formed in the bond coat of the MCNG-based system while the AM1-based one undergoes strong rumpling of the TGO/bond coat interface due to the loss of the thermal barrier coating.
