Borosilicide coatings for high-temperature Mo-Si-B alloys
Mo-Si-B alloys are being developed as high temperature structural materials due to their high melting points (above 2000°C) and good oxidation resistance that results from the protective self-healing scale that develops intrinsically upon high temperature exposure. In the current work, new borosilicide-based multi-layer coatings have been synthesized and applied on Mo-Si-B alloys by means of simultaneous B and Si pack-cementation to enhance the oxidation protection at temperatures in excess of 1400°C.
