Development of Nano-Coatings and Nano-Particles

In order to create surfaces with new properties, nano-technology is an important new option. Coatings with new structural or functional properties have been applied to ceramic surfaces. The following procedures have been developed through the MEWAPREV project:
Procedure for controlled impregnation of ceramic SLM parts and partial surface modification of porous alumina parts. Pre-treatment/surface activation of alumina in view of varying its hydrophobicity grade.
Procedure for modification of the surface of alumina ceramics in view of increased corrosion resistance and increased surface area. Procedure for grafting various functional groups on oxide surface and ceramic membranes.
Procedure for applying Nafion membranes on ceramic parts.
This nanotechnology is available also for metallic surfaces.
