Nanomaterials powders, coatings and consolidated solids: materials concepts, structure, properties

CSGI has acquired a considerable understanding and knowledge of Nanopowders behaviour in thermal spraying as correlated to manufacturing by high-energy milling. Materials design approaches experimented allowed to conceive the composite systems.

A number of characterization techniques were established for powders, coatings and consolidated materials, to assess the structure and properties. Consolidation work, allowed learning the kinetics of densification under HIP conditions. The knowledge acquired will serve to CSGI in further developmental activities in the field of nano-materials for wider use even beyond thermal spraying and cladding.
