The microstructure and mechanical properties of nitrogen and boron contained ZrCuAlNi thin film metallic glass composites
Surface and Coatings Technology 237:276 (2013)In this work, nitrogen contained and B doped ZrCuAlNi thin film metallic glass composites (TFMGCs) were grown by magnetron co-sputtering process. Boron element was doped to evaluate its influence on the microstructure and mechanical properties of nitrogen contained TFMGCs. The supercooled...
Development of advanced duplex surface systems by combining CrAlN multilayer coatings with plasma nitrided steel substrates
Surface and Coatings Technology 236:2 (2013)Both modelling analyses and experimental work have recently confirmed that the failure of thin coatings on steel, especially under high loads for some demanding applications, is related to the lack of mechanical support from the substrate, which means that the exceptional hardness, toughne...
Low temperature pack aluminising kinetics of nickel electroplated on creep resistant ferritic steel
Surface and Coatings Technology 236:135 (2013)A systematic study was made to determine the low temperature (<700°C) growth kinetics of the Ni2Al3 layer formed by the pack aluminising process on the surface of nickel electroplated on creep resistant ferritic steels. The aluminising powder packs were prepared using Al powder as a source...
Surface modification of iron particles with polystyrene and surfactants under high-energy ball milling
Surface and Coatings Technology 236:429 (2013)We have modified the surface of iron particles with polystyrene and fluorine-substituted/alkyl carbon acids by wet mechanochemical treatment. The study was performed by means of Fourier-Transform Infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy, Near-Edge X-ray Absorption Fine Structure (NEXAFS) spectroscopy and X-ray...
Development of silicide coatings to ensure the protection of Nb and silicide composites against high temperature oxidation
Surface and Coatings Technology 235:401 (2013)We describe the fabrication of coatings containing (TiNbXCr)7Si6 silicide (with X=Fe, Co and Ni) by halide-activated pack-cementation on Nb and silicide composites. The coating oxidation performance is evaluated isothermally at temperatures ranging from 1100°C to 1300°C and cyclically at 1100°C. In...
Effect of surface burnishing on texture and corrosion behavior of 2024 aluminum alloy
Surface and Coatings Technology 235:513 (2013)These results were further supported by SEM after corrosion immersion....
Devitrification of arc-sprayed FeBSiNb amorphous coatings: Effects on wear resistance and mechanical behavior
Surface and Coatings Technology 235:720 (2013)FeBSiNb amorphous coatings were synthesized by arc spray processing. The effects of annealing treatments on the microstructure, elastic and mechanical properties of the coatings were investigated. Annealing below 650°C induces the formation of α-Fe phase nanocrystals. Annealing at 650°C pr...
Mechanical and electromechanical behavior of oxide coatings grown on stainless steel 304L by nanosecond pulsed laser irradiation
Surface and Coatings Technology 235:860 (2013)Nanosecond-pulsed laser exposure of an austenitic stainless steel 304L in ambient atmosphere produces dielectric oxide coatings with characteristic colors. From an industrial perspective, these oxide layers are particularly interesting for use as unique authenticity identifiers on welded o...
Effects of chromium ion implantation voltage on the corrosion resistance and cytocompatibility of dual chromium and oxygen plasma-ion-implan...
Surface and Coatings Technology 235:875 (2013)Magnesium is modified by chromium ion implantation at different voltages followed by oxygen ion implantation to improve the corrosion resistance and cytocompatibility. All the implanted samples exhibit improved corrosion resistance and the ones implanted at a lower voltage yield better res...
Effective phase control of silicon films during high-rate deposition in atmospheric-pressure very high-frequency plasma: Impacts of gas resi...
Surface and Coatings Technology 234:2 (2013)Hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si) and microcrystalline silicon (μc-Si) films were grown in atmospheric-pressure (AP) He/H2/SiH4 plasma excited by a 150-MHz very high-frequency (VHF) power at a temperature of 220°C. The variations in thickness and crystallinity of the deposited Si films...
