To establish the feasibility of coating SMFs

Result: to establish the feasibility of coating SMFs (sintered metal filters).

To establish that it is possible to apply a coating to a sintered metal filter that is stable with respect to the chemical properties of the coating.

There is potential for use in all heavy-duty vehicles should future legislation require this in Europe and in the US. DPFs (Diesel Particulate Filters) have already been fitted to Diesel passenger cars and there is also thus potential for this technology to be applied in light-duty applications. The number of applications to vehicles is well in excess of 1 million.

The result is innovative, as the substrate used has not been applied previously.

This result has been achieved, meeting the deliverable "Basis coating material" and contributing toward the milestone "report for a basis method to coat sintered metal filter" due in month 18.
