Abstract

Aluminum alloys have been used in industries for years because of light weight. But these

materials have some disadvantages like low mechanical properties. For increasing of the

mechanical properties of aluminum alloys can be coated with hard ceramics. In this study, T6

heat treated 6063 aluminum alloy were coated with %8 Y-PSZ powders by plasma spraying

method. Subsequently, creep properties of the uncoated and coated samples were investigated.

Temperature dependent creep tests were carried out at 100, 125, 150°C temperatures and at

170 MPa stress conditions. Stress dependent creep tests were carried out at 120, 145, 170

MPa stresses and at 100°C temperature conditions. The creep results of the uncoated and

coated samples were discussed and compared.
