The influence of SixCy and SixNy amorphous coatings on the oxidation resistance of a Ti6242 (Ti–6Al–2Sn–4Zr–2Mo) alloy was investigated. They were produced at room temperature by the dynamic ion mixing technique combining physical vapour deposition with simultaneous bombardment with 120 keV Ar+ ions. Isothermal oxidation tests were carried out at 600 °C in 1 atm flowing synthetic air (80% N2, 20% O2) demonstrating a considerable reduction (not, vert, similartwo orders of magnitude) of the oxidation rate for at least 100 h. The structural modifications after oxidation were investigated by XPS, XRD, SEM, SIMS. The formation of SiO2 is detected as the main oxidation product in the coating and the formation of Ti–Si compounds is also observed in the coating/substrate interface region. The crystallisation of SixNy is not detected and for SixCy only some traces of β-SiC could exist. The improvement of oxidation resistance of Ti6242 is discussed in relation with the intrinsic properties of the coatings and with the interface mixing and ion beam densification.
