Title: Effect of CMAS composition on hot corrosion behavior of gadolinium zirconate thermal barrier coating materials

Abstract

The resistance of synthesized pyrochlore-type Gd 2Zr 2O 7 bulk specimens to four calcium-magnesium aluminosilicate (CMAS) compositions at different temperatures was investigated. The reaction products were identified by x-ray diffraction and penetration depths were examined using scanning electron microscopy. A dense reaction layer is comprised mainly of Ca 2Gd 8(SiO 4) 6O 2 and a cubic fluorite phase formed during the CMAS attack, and some unreacted CMAS was found in a transition layer below the reaction layer. The overall infiltration depth changed slightly with temperature, however, the thickness of the reaction layer and the morphology of the transition layer varied distinctly with temperature. The sintered sample underwent the most severe degradation by the CaO-lean CMAS, whereas the effect of CaSO 4 and CaCO 3 was not significant. Furthermore, the Gd content of the ZrO 2-based cubic fluorite phase depends on the temperature and the molar ratio of Ca:Si in the CMAS.
