  1. In this study, a compact cold sprayed (CS) Ti coating was deposited on Mg alloy using a high pressure cold spray (HPCS) system. The wear and corrosion behavior of the CS Ti coating was compared with that of CS Al coating and bare Mg alloy. The Ti coating yielded lower wear rate compared to Al coating and Mg alloy. Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and cyclic potentiodynamic polarization (CPP) tests revealed that CS Ti coating can substantially reduce corrosion rate of AZ31B in chloride containing solutions compared to CS Al coating. Interestingly, Ti-coated Mg alloy demonstrated negative hysteresis loop, depicting repassivation of pits, in contrast to AZ31B and Al-coated AZ31B with positive hysteresis loops where corrosion potential (Ecorr) > repassivation potential (Erp); indicating irreversible growth of pits. AZ31B and Al-coated AZ31B were most susceptible to pitting corrosion, while Ti-coated Mg alloy indicated noticeable resistance to pitting in 3.5 wt % NaCl solution. In comparison to Al coating, Ti coating considerably separated the AZ31BMg alloy surface from the corrosive electrolyte during long term immersion test for 11 days.
