- Over the past twenty years silicon based ceramics have generated considerable enthusiasm in the scientific community. Of particular interest is Si3N4, one of the leading candidates of this family, for very demanding structural applications. Its properties are well known and include a high strength to weight ratio, a high chemical resistance, and excellent high temperature properties. However, it was reported in previous papers that the performances of Si3N4 were dramatically affected by hot alkali molten salts. In order to alleviate this phenomenon, it was suggested that certain oxide ceramics, which exhibit better resistance to the alkali corrosion, could be applied as protective coatings. Using the sol-gel process and dip coating technique, CMZP and Mg-doped Al2TiO5 thin films were deposited on Si3N4 substrates and exposure to a sodium containing atmosphere was carried out. During this reporting period, the emphasis was placed on investigating the microstrutural changes of coated and uncoated samples as well as on assessing their alkali corrosion resistance.
