Abstract : Two spherical Ti-6Al-4V 25-45 µm and 45-75 µm powders, were sprayed in a CAPS system -Controlled Atmosphere Plasma Spraying- operating in a coupled mode: High-Pressure Plasma Spraying HPPS and Reactive Plasma Spraying RPS. Four different pressure settings up to 250 kPa with reactive nitrogen atmosphere were tested in order to assess the influence of chamber pressure and chamber atmosphere on the deposition of Ti-6Al-4V coatings. The microstructures and phase compositions of the plasma sprayed Ti-6Al-4V coatings were studied using standard X-ray diffraction XRD and electron probe microanalysis EPMA with help of electron microscopy techniques SEM and TEM. These established the pressure-assisted nitriding of the Ti-6Al-4V in the CAPS chamber with fine and coarse TiN precipitates embedded in a α-Ti matrix. A High-Pressure coupled with RPS enhanced the nitriding of the Ti-6Al-4V powder with a content of nitrogen which was all the higher because particle size was low.
