The purpose of this research was to investigate the corrosion behavior of the low/high Yb2SiO5 containing Yb2Si2O7 coatings under high-velocity water vapor flow. To that end, Yb2Si2O7 and Si coatings were deposited by atmospheric plasma spraying on SiC substrates. The corrosion tests were performed in the burned natural gas under atmospheric pressure, with a gas flow velocity of 100 m/s at 1200 °C for 200 h. After the test, a 25 μm thick, porous corrosion layer at the surface of the Yb2Si2O7 rich coatings was found accompanied with a mass reduction, whereas samples with Yb2SiO5 rich coatings showed mass gain indicating the greater resistance of Yb2SiO5 against water vapor. A comparison of the Yb2Si2O7 rich coatings tested in this work and Yb2Si2O7 bulk samples tested in an earlier work at the same facility revealed significantly different recession rates. Possible mechanisms responsible for this distinct behavior are discussed in the manuscript.
