Fabrication of thick oxide ceramic coatings upon a metal substrate by laser processing has been investigated. Crucial parameters studied included beam power, diameter, overlap and traverse speed, feed powder size and coating environment. Coatings were characterised by a range of surface analytical techniques. The corrosion protection afforded by a coating was assessed in both oxidising and sulphidising environments.
