This paper deals with the development of new synthesis techniques for functional materials such as Yttria Stabilized Zirconia (YSZ) used in the field of thermal barriers coatings. Currently, Thermal Barrier Coatings (TBCs) are manufactured by dry route technologies (EB-PVD or plasma spray) but such methods are directional and often require costly investments and complicated operations. We have carried out significant work aimed at developing sol-gel routes, which are nondirectional methods, to prepare, by suitable chemical modifications, nanocrystalline materials with a controlled morphology. The main advantage of this method is to decrease the crystallization temperature, much lower than the conventional processes, allowing the synthesis of reactive powders with nanometric particles size. In this paper, the formulation of an alkoxide sol has been optimized in order to obtain homogeneous YSZ films. Nature and quantity of binders have been studied. Superalloys have been then immersed in the sol and withdrawn at several controlled rates before being annealed at different temperatures. The films microstructures have been investigated using scanning electron microscopy. It appears that the combination of a slower withdrawal speed (17 cm/min) with a 3 wt.% content of DBP allows to obtain the most homogeneous and the thicker coatings. Moreover, SEM-FEG observations have shown that the deposit is present all over the rough surface of the substrate and is composed of two morphologies: a YSZ thin covering film and a thicker discontinuous layer duplicating the substrate topography.
