Corrosion is the deterioration of materials by chemical interaction with their environment. In the oil and gas industry, corrosion of the pipelines and other equipment is one of the leading causes of failure and the corrosion-related costs are very high. Hence, corrosion protection is an essential requirement. In this study, the objective is to analysis of the corrosion protection behavior of spray Alumina-Titania (Al2O3-TiO2) oxide ceramic coating on carbon steel pipes C45 using two different thermal spray coatings processes. These two different thermal spraying coating, High velocity oxy-fuel (HVOF) and plasma thermal spraying techniques can be used instead of extensive treatment by expensive chemical formation of coatings on pipelines and equipment to improve or restore a component's surface properties or dimensions and to protect them from corrosion. Molten or semi-molten ceramic composite powders are sprayed on the surface in order to produce a dense coating layer. FESEM of coated samples showed that a high temperature of plasma coating method end in melting the ceramic powders and creation of completely melted regions on the coated samples’ surface compared to HVOF coating techniques. Corrosion testing of coated samples in seawater (3.5% NaCl) was conducted within 30 days. Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) as well as potentiodynamic polarization outcomes represented that the corrosion resistivity of plasma coating technique for this type of ceramic composite is better than HVOF coating technique. However, both types of coating techniques are protecting the substrate against seawater.
