Abstract or Summary

Titanium alloys have many favourable properties such as high strength to weight ratio, good ductility and fracture toughness, high corrosion resistance, high melting point and good biocompatibility with human tissues, making them very important engineering materials for many applications in aerospace, chemical engineering, automotive, biomedical and other industries. Despite their superior properties, annual world production of titanium alloy (including titanium) products is currently only 120~130,000 tonnes, limited by the high costs of titanium alloys. In the meantime, the strong demand for titanium alloys driven by fast economic development of countries such as China and India and the strong interest in using titanium alloys for making different products causes a shortage of the titanium alloy products and dramatic price increase. This leads to many opportunities for new titanium alloy product manufacturers. This project aims to establish the key powder characteristics and spraying conditions needed for the formation of a well bonded solid coating. The relationship between processing conditions, microstructure, mechanical properties and coating attributes.
