Abstract: Alumina coatings on stainless steel substrate (SS304) were deposited by using atmospheric plasma spray technique with a feed stock of manually granulated and sieved nano Al2O3 powder. The hardness, sliding, and erosive wear of the nanostructured alumina coatings (NC) were investigated and compared with that of conventional alumina coatings (CC). Pin-on disc type sliding wear test on the alumina coatings (NC and CC) was performed with load varying from 30N to 80N at a sliding speed of 0.5m/s. Pot type slurry erosion test of the coatings was conducted for different concentrations of Al2O3 and a mixture of Al2O3 and SiO2 slurry. The microstructural features of both NC and CC of alumina were characterized by using FE-SEM/EDS and SEM analysis to substantiate the failure of coatings due to wear. Wear and erosion resistance of nano alumina coating is better than the conventional alumina coating as observed in the present work. The bimodal structure of NC contributes for the enhanced wear resistance. The high fracture toughness of NC is due to suppression of cracks by partially melted particles in the coatings. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd.
