In present study, we have deposited the Zinc coating using arc thermal spray and plasma arc spray processes onto the steel substrate and durability of the deposited coating was evaluated. The bond adhesion result shows that plasma arc sprayed Zn coating exhibited higher in its value compared to arc thermal spray. SEM shows that Zn coating deposited by plasma arc process is more compact, less porous and adherent compare to arc spray process. The corrosion resistance properties are evaluated in artificial ocean water solution with exposure periods. EIS results show that total impedance at 0.01 Hz of plasma arc sprayed coating is higher than arc thermal spray owing to the compact and less porous morphology. It is concluded that plasma arc sprayed Zn coating is better than arc thermal spray process.
