Abstract: A single splat is the building block of a thermal spray coating; thus, investigating single splats is essential to understanding thermal spray coatings and their properties. In this study, the morphology of flame sprayed ethylene methacrylic acid (EMAA) splats, deposited at various stand-off distances (SODs) onto glass and mild steel substrates were investigated using a scanning electron microscope, Leica M Stereo-microscope, the WYKO surface profiler and the ContourGT surface profiler. This work analyzed the effect of the process variables on EMAA splat morphology. The modeling of the temperature versus velocity (TV) map, the temperature versus stand-off distance (TS) map and the velocity versus stand-off distance (VS) map of EMAA single splat were presented.
Keywords: EMAA; splats; wettability; roughness; morphology; thermal spray
