Abstract: Ferritic stainless steel surfaces have been coated with Co+Mo+Cr+Si mixed powder by using the atmospheric plasma spray (APS) method with four different currents. The characterisation of coated layers is achieved with optical microscope (OM), scanning electron microscope (SEM), energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis. The adhesion strength of coated layers was calculated with ASTM C633 standard test method. In X-ray diffraction measurements, compounds similar to Co2Mo3, Co7Mo6, Co3Mo2Si, Cr3Mo and CoMoSi were detected in coated layers. The maximum bonding strength and hardness have been detected in the specimen plasma-sprayed with current density 600 A.

Keywords: ferritic stainless steel; coating; cobalt alloy; bonding strength; microstructure.
