Ni-based coatings of the type Inconel 625 sprayed with high-kinetic spray processes are applied as protective coatings in many industrial fields where high corrosion resistance is required. Among the high-kinetic spray processes HVOF (High-Velocity Oxygen-Fuel) is an affirmed technology while HVAF (High-Velocity Air-Fuel) and cold spray are promising technologies for the deposition of thick and dense coatings, able to extend the service life of components subjected to harsh corrosive conditions. This study aims to assess the effect of the different high-kinetic spray technologies on the chlorine-induced high temperature corrosion behaviour of the coatings. The coatings were exposed to the test condition of 550°C in the presence of KCl salt deposits under air flow with 12 % of specific humidity for 168 h. The corrosion behaviour of the coatings was evaluated and compared with a reference wrought Inconel 625. Corrosion products and coatings were analysed and characterised in order to define the corrosion/oxidation mechanisms.
