Nanostructured Coating Progress
- Nanostructure (retaining key nanostructure) have been deposited by the HVOAF.
- Two types of customized coating materials have been used (cermets and metallic) according to the final application.
- Not only commercial powders but also customized ones have been self-produced inside the consortium.
- Micro sized powders with nanostructure have been used avoiding nanoparticle handling.
- Cold spray has been used as a greener alternative (no combustion) comparing to other thermal spraying and plating technologies.
