  1. Plasma enhanced paste aluminizing of Ti–45Al–2Nb–2Mn–1B with Al–Si alloys

    Surface and Coatings Technology 283:10 (2015)

    Ti–45Al–2Nb–2Mn–1B was plasma enhanced paste aluminized at 800°C for 30min with Al–Si alloys, to investigate the effect of silicon on the structure of coatings and oxidation compounds. Optical and electron microscopy revealed fine and coarse particles of blocky and plate like or needle...
  2. Growth and internal microstructure of micro-arc oxidized MgO-based nanocomposite coating

    Surface and Coatings Technology 283:1 (2015)

    In this study, AZ31B magnesium alloy specimens were studied with both nanocrystallized and coarse-grained surfaces. Nanocrystallization was made by using the Surface Mechanical Attrition Treatment (SMAT). Then, micro-arc oxidation process was performed on both surface treated and untre...
  3. Study on morphological and structural properties of silver plating on laser etched silicon

    Surface and Coatings Technology 283:22 (2015)

    The immersion-plating method for the preparation of silver nanoparticles is highly selected because it has the virtue of simplicity and lower cost. Silver nanoparticles features deposition onto a porous silicon (PSi) layer from aqueous solutions of two silver salt (AgNO3) concentration...
  4. Structural, mechanical and tribological properties of pulsed DC magnetron sputtered TiN–WSx/TiN bilayer coating

    Surface and Coatings Technology 282:24 (2015)

    Hard-lubricious composite coatings of TiN–WSx with pure TiN under layer were deposited by pulsed DC closed field unbalanced magnetron sputtering in Ar and N2 mixed environment from separate Ti and WS2 targets. The effect of WSx content on the structural, mechanical and tribological pro...
  5. Preparation and characterization of osmium films on quartz substrate by magnetron sputtering method

    Surface and Coatings Technology 282:1 (2015)

    Micron-thick osmium films were deposited on quartz substrates with a pulsed −200V bias using magnetron sputtering method. Application of ~100nm Ti buffer layer resulted in successful deposition of as thick as ~3μm Os films. Structure and morphology of the films were studied in terms of...
  6. Influence of pulsed bias duty cycle variations on structural and mechanical properties of arc evaporated (Al,Cr)2O3 coatings

    Surface and Coatings Technology 282:43 (2015)

    (AlxCr1−x)2O3 coatings were synthesised by cathodic arc evaporation applying DC and pulsed substrate bias voltages to study the impact of different bias duty cycle settings on structure and morphology as well as mechanical and tribological properties. X-ray diffraction revealed a corun...
  7. Formation and characterization of uniform SiC coating on 3-D graphite substrate using halide activated pack cementation method

    Surface and Coatings Technology 282:61 (2015)

    Protective coatings are required for enhanced performance of carbon base materials for application in an oxidizing environment. Studies were carried out to uniformly coat SiC over the graphite substrate, using halide activated pack cementation (HAPC) method. Experimental results reveal...
  8. Microstructural analysis and thermal shock behavior of plasma sprayed ceria-stabilized zirconia thermal barrier coatings with micro and nano Al2O3 as a third layer

    Surface and Coatings Technology 282:129 (2015)

    In this study, thermal shock behavior of three types of atmospheric plasma sprayed ceria-stabilized zirconia (CSZ) thermal barrier coatings was evaluated: usual CSZ, layer composite of CSZ/Micro Al2O3 and layer composite of CSZ/Nano Al2O3 in which Al2O3 was used as a top coat on CSZ la...
  9. Noble metals role in autocatalytic phosphate coatings on TAV alloys. I.Ag functionalization of autocatalytic phosphate deposition on TAV alloys

    Surface and Coatings Technology 282:171 (2015)

    The autocatalytic route was created using AgCl similar to PdCl2 to develop calcium phosphate layer on Ti6Al4V (TAV) substrates as previously demonstrated by the present authors. Alkaline (NaOH)-treatment and heat regimes were performed to render the surfaces susceptible to deposition. ...
  10. Microstructure and transmission electron microscopy characterization of electroless Ni–B thin films deposited on MWCNTs

    Surface and Coatings Technology 282:107 (2015)

    In this work we report on the Ni–B electroless coating of multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs). Characterization was carried out using scanning electron microscopy, high-resolution transmission electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, Raman spectroscopy and thermogravimetric analysis. Pr...
