Al2O3/TZ-3YS coatings developed by suspension plasma spraying were studied in the present work. Mechanical and thermal characterization was realized to evaluate the suitability of thermal barrier coatings. In addition, SiC particle reinforcement was evaluated for its effect on the mechanical properties of the coating. The problem with SiC reinforcement is its high melting point that causes a large amount of unmolten material to be deposited on the coating. One possible solution followed in the

The results conclude that the use of fructose as an additive increases the mechanical and thermal properties (from 1.0 to 1.6 W/m·K), since the microstructure is modified, and results in a lower porosity (17%) compared to the SiC coating (25%).
