With MoSi2-30Al2O3 mixed powders as the raw material, MoSi2-30Al2O3 electrothermal coating was sprayed by atmospheric plasma spraying technology. The phase composition, microstructure and thermal stability of the coating were systematically studied by XRD, SEM, electrical test and differential thermal gravity analysis. The results show that MoSi2-30Al2O3 electrothermal coating shows dense microstructure. Al2O3 can improve the electrical resistivity and oxidation resistance of MoSi2 materials in low temperature. The coating exhibits an excellent electrical-heating performance. In the heating cycle test, it could be heated to 320 ℃ stably and exhibit uniform thermal distribution in the surface area. The temperature variation in roll’s central area can be controlled within 25 ℃; Oxidation and thermal stress relaxation during heating cycle would generate cracks and pores in the coating which would increase electrical resistivity.

Key words: electrothermal material, MoSi2-Al2O3 composite coating, atmospheric plasma spraying, electrical- heating performance
