In addition to the actual functional properties, the bond strengths between the coating and the substrate constitute one of the decisive quality criteria of a thermally sprayed coating. Since conventional thermal spraying is carried out almost exclusively in an air atmosphere, this leads to the oxidation of the surfaces and the interfaces at the coating point so that no material-locking interfaces can be achieved. One possibility of completely suppressing the oxidation during the coating operation is offered by shifting the coating operation into a monosilane / inert gas mixture. The present paper deals with the influences of different inert gas mixtures with different residual oxygen proportions on the arc and the particle atomisation in the case of twin-wire arc spraying. It is shown that the shifting of the coating process into a silane-doped inert gas atmosphere leads to freedom from oxides and a rise in the productivity of the process.
