Abstract: Thermal spraying is emerging as the leading route for the deposition of protective coatings onto engineering components to improve operation under extreme conditions of temperature, wear or corrosion. Detailed microstructural assessment is a key element in improving coating performance, and this study demonstrates the application of microfocus X-ray techniques to the determination of elemental and structural variations in the coatings.
