A SiO2-Al2O3 glass composite coating was prepared on Ti60 alloy via air spraying slurry and then a suitable baking process. It was composed of potassium silicate glass, alumina and quartz powders. The high temperature oxidation performance of the alloy with and without coating was evaluated in static air at both 800 degrees C and 900 degrees C. The results show that catastrophic oxidation occurs for Ti60 bare alloy. It had a mass gain of about 2 mg/cm(2) after oxidation at 800 degrees C and 17 mg/cm(2) at 900 degrees C for 100 h. On the contrary, the oxidation resistance of alloy coated with composite coating was much improved with the mass gain about 0.36 mg/cm(2) and 0.95 mg/cm(2) at 800 degrees C and at 900 degrees C, respectively. The microstructure evolution of the composite coating and the alloy was analyzed by scanning electron microscope and electron probe microanalyzer. The effect of the composite coating on the oxidation performance of the alloy is discussed especially in terms of oxygen diffusion and interfacial reaction.
