Probable causes include:
1- Corrosion of the aluminum substrate from exposure to environment though porosity in the coating (remember plasma coatings exhibit around 5% porosity).
2- Difference in the thermal expansion coefficients of both materials will gradually tend to separate the coating.
Remedies could come from thinner but more dense coatings like new generation of HVOF equipment or PVD coatings.
