The literature relating to the aluminising of Ni-based
alloys has been reviewed. Experimental studies have been made
to determine the Al uptake, and characterise the aluminide
coatings produced on MAR-M002 and Nimonic Alloy PE16 at
700°C–1000°C. The rediffusion process and degradation of
coatings produced have also been studied in inert atmospheres
at temperatures of 900°C and 1050°C (MAR-M002) and 700°C–1050°C (PE16). [Continues.]
