The coatings obtained by thermal spray are used both as antioxidant and connection materials (e.g. MCrAlY type alloys) as well as thermal barrier coatings (e.g. partially stabilized zirconia oxide with yttria oxide). This paper studies the characteristics of the coatings obtained with nanostructured powders by thermal spraying and air plasma jet metallization. Testing of coatings is done against the most disturbing factor, thermal shock. Structural changes occurring after thermal shock tests
