Plasma spraying was used to deposit premixed Ti6Al4V + 15 wt.% BN powder on titanium substrate to fabricate Ti6Al4V matrix composite coatings reinforced with in situ synthesized TiB-TiN. The formation of in situ TiB-TiN reinforcements increased with plasma power. The in situ reaction appears to be complete under present experimental conditions but with considerable oxidation of Ti in the composite coatings. The hardness of composite coatings was 7 times higher (855HV), and the in vitro wear rate (2.4 x 10(-5) mm(3)/N m) was one order of magnitude less than that of titanium substrate. However, the microstructural non-uniformity decreased the corrosion resistance of these composite coatings in Hank's balanced salt solution.
