Effect of Pulsed Waterjet Surface Preparation on the Adhesion Strength of Cold Gas Dynamic Sprayed Aluminum Coatings
It has been observed that the method of substrate surface preparation can have a profound effect on the adhesion strength of cold-sprayed metallic coatings. In this investigation, pure aluminum powder was sprayed onto aluminum alloy substrates using cold spray. The substrates used in this work had undergone a variety of surface preparations to impart varying degrees of surface roughness. The pulsed waterjet technique was used to increase the substrates' surface roughness beyond what can be achieved using traditional grit blasting procedures. Surfaces prepared using pulsed waterjet resulted in substantial increases in the pure aluminum coating adhesion strength. This increase may be the result of increased mechanical anchoring sites available as well as their favorable geometries. It is hypothesized that compressive residual stress may also contribute to increased adhesion strength.
