Electrophoretic Deposition of Ni/SiO2 Nanocomposite Coating: Fabrication Process and Tribological and Corrosion Properties

Authors: Arash Ghalayani Isfahani, Mohammad Ghorbani


Abstract: To the best of our knowledge, this work presents the first successful effort to fabricate and study nanostructured Ni-based composite coatings using the electrophoretic deposition method with nanostructured SiO2 particles. In this work, Ni/SiO2 nanoparticle composite coatings were prepared by electrophoretic deposition (EPD) [ and their hardness, wear and corrosion resistances [ were examined. After studying the morphology of the coatings and finding the optimum conditions for uniform coating, in order to improve the mechanical properties as well as resistance to corrosion, sintering was performed. The Ni/SiO2 nanocomposite coatings show excellent hardness (~376 HV), reduced Youngs modulus (~180 GPa), contact stiffness (~110 μN/Nm) as well as the wear and corrosion resistances which are considered in the different SiO2 concentrations and particle sizes. In addition, by controlling the size of the SiO2 particles, in optimum coating voltage and proper time duration, hardness and wear resistance of nanocomposite coatings were controlled.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
