Abstract—In this work, Inconel 738LC is coated with coatings with nano Yttria Stabilized Zirconia (YSZ) with different percentages of Carbon Nano Tubes (CNTs) which were done by using the technique of the plasma thermal spray. YSZ coating with different percentages of CNTs (100% nano YSZ, 96% nano YSZ + 4% CNTs, 94% nano YSZ + 6% CNTs, and 92% nano YSZ + 8% CNTs), adopting the plasma spray technique. The behavior of the Inconel 738LC alloy with and without artificial ash (67% wt. H2SO4 and 33% wt. V2O5) at different temperatures (650 oC, 750 oC, 850 oC, and 950 oC) was investigated. The cycles of hot corrosion and oxidation were achieved in an electric furnace for 10 cycles of 5 h each. At the completion of each cycle, the weight changes were measured and recorded. The Search Engine Marketing (SEM) and X-RayDiffraction (XRD) achieved for all the specimens were noted, prior and post the corrosion.

Keywords—Inconel 738LC, oxidation, hot corrosion, Yttria Stabilized Zirconia (YSZ)–Carbon Nano Tubes (CNTs), artificial ash
