Bilayer molecular coatings for electrical contact improvement (BILAYER MOLECULAR COATING)

Objective

This proposal is about the elaboration of a permanent organic coating for electrical contacts that diminishes the degradations due to friction and corrosion . The aim is to significantly improve performances and reliability of contacts used in the very competitive fields of automotive and telecom industries .Liquid lubricants are prone to depletion and thus not sufficient : an efficient protection has to be permanent .We propose a new type of bi-layer : a grafted layer and a free one , the two films consisting of similar molecules for an optimized interaction . Coated connector terminals will be tested with the standardized industrial specifications .
