Corrosion-Resistant ABS Tone Ring
A tone ring of a vehicle anti-lock braking system of the type that is integrated into a disc brake rotor. The tone ring has a protective layer which enables it to withstand the combination of extreme heat and harsh environmental conditions to which it is exposed during operation of the vehicle. The protective layer is applied by thermally spraying a selected one of a plurality of materials, such as a nickel-based alloy, a high-chrome stainless steel, or non-ferrous materials such as an aluminum, copper-based alloys or a ceramic, on teeth of the tone ring, and without causing the protective layer to be deposited on the rotor braking surfaces. The protective layer generally prevents the formation of oxidation and corrosion byproduct layers on the teeth, to thereby maintain sensitivity for detection of teeth movement by the anti-lock braking system sensor during operation of the system.

Electrical contact is made with the contact element indirectly via the sprayed-on material. The thermal encapsulation by the spraying in the contact region makes it possible for a reliable electrical contact to be made even in the case of soft materials having a tendency towards cold flow.

Multilayer Bond Coat for a Thermal Barrier Coating System and Process Therefor
A method of depositing a bond coat of a thermal barrier coating (TBC) system for components designed for use in a hostile thermal environment, such as turbine, combustor and augmentor components of a gas turbine engine. The method yields a dense, bi-layer bond coat having an adequate surface roughness for adhering a plasma-sprayed ceramic layer. The method generally entails depositing a first bond coat layer using a high velocity oxy-fuel (HVOF) technique employing a relatively fine metallic powder having a relatively narrow size distribution. Following heat treatment, a second bond coat layer is deposited on the first bond coat layer by air plasma spraying (APS) a relatively coarser metallic powder of particles having a relatively broader size distribution. The resulting second bond coat layer is characterized by a macro-surface roughness of about 450 to about 750 microinches Ra. Following a second heat treatment, the ceramic layer is deposited that adheres to the bond coat through mechanical interlocking with the rough surface of the second coat layer. The present invention relates to protective coatings for components exposed to high temperatures, such as components of a gas turbine engine. More particularly, this invention is directed to a process for forming a bond coat of a thermal barrier coating system, and specifically a dense multilayer bond coat having a desirable level of surface roughness to promote mechanical interlocking between the bond coat and a thermal barrier coating deposited on the bond coat.
