Abstract

Previous studies of dielectric properties of thermally sprayed insulating ceramic coatings are focused on linearly ramped dielectric breakdown strength as well as DC resistivity, relative permittivity and dielectric loss characterizations. However, reports of the effects of ramp rate or of any kind of long term stressing on the breakdown strength cannot be found in literature. The aim of this paper was to study the DC breakdown behavior of one type of HVOF sprayed alumina coating under different stresses. It can be concluded that the ramp rate of DC breakdown measurement has no remarkably influence on the breakdown strength. The breakdown behavior was also studied using step-by-step tests with two constant step voltages and step durations. The DC resistivity of the alumina coating showed strong dependence on the applied electric field. The resistivity behaved ohmicly below the field strength of ~0.5 V/μm and above ~8…12 V/μm, however, the resistivity decreased approximately three decades in the nonohmic region (0.5 V/μm ). At electric field strengths above ~25 V/μm, the degradation started in the material leading to breakdown. However, when the step duration was longer (60 min), the degradation process started already slightly below the applied field of 25 V/μm.
