- NiTi alloy is here investigated as an alternative coating to stainless steel since it is considered to possess good corrosion properties. Three different thermal spray techniques (high velocity oxy-fuel -HVOF-, vacuum plasma spray -VPS- and atmospheric plasma spray quenching -APS+Q-) have been used for building the coatings, and electrochemical tests have been carried out for corrosion evaluation. Open-circuit tests have revealed that the VPS-coating shows fairly good corrosion resistance, both in the as-sprayed and polished forms. The HVOF coatings however, showed a strong dependence on the surface conditions and APS+Q is dominated by electrolyte penetration through coating cracks, thus exhibiting a higher i(corr).
