In this study, alumina/A380 composite coatings were fabricated by cold spray. The influence of alumina particulates’ morphology (spherical and irregular) and content on the deposition behavior of the coatings (including surface roughness, surface residual stress, cross-sectional microstructure and microhardness) was investigated. Results revealed that the spherical alumina mainly shows micro-tamping effect during deposition, which result in remarkable low surface roughness and porosity of the coatings. In addition, very low deposition efficiency and good interfacial bonding between the coating and the substrate were achieved. For irregular alumina particles, the embedding of ceramic particulates in the coating was dominant during deposition process, resulting in high retention in the final deposit. However, it showed limited influence on porosity, surface roughness and interfacial bonding of the deposit. The coatings containing irregular alumina particulates exhibited much higher microhardness than those containing spherical alumina due to the higher load-bearing capacity of deposited alumina.
