  2. 2. Triboactive Component Coatings : Tribological Testing and Microanalysis of Low-Friction Tribofilms

    Author : Fredrik Gustavsson; Staffan Jacobson; Bojan Podgornik; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; tribofilms; low-friction coatings; tungsten disulfide; TEM; Materialvetenskap; Materials Science;

    Abstract : Coatings are often used on critical components in machines and engines to reduce wear and to provide low friction in order to reduce energy losses and the environmental impact.A triboactive coating not only provides this desired performance, it also actively maintains the low friction by a structural or chemical change in a very thin top layer of these already micrometer thin coatings.

  3. 3. Low-friction and wear-resistant carbon nitride coatings for bearing components grown by magnetron sputtering

    Author : Konstantinos Bakoglidis; Grzegorz Greczynski; Lars Hultman; Susann Schmidt; Witold Gulbinski; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Carbon nitride; magnetron sputtering; physical vapor deposition; coatings; bearings; rolling contact fatigue; adhesion; friction; wear; transmission electron microscopy; scanning electron microscopy; x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy; coatings tribology; nanotribology;

    Abstract : The scope of this thesis is the investigation of magnetron sputtered carbon nitride coatings suitable for roller bearing components. The research field of tribology of bearings focuses on minimizing friction between components by improving the lubricants. READ MORE

  4. 4. Thermally cured coil-coatings utilizing novel resins and fatty acid methyl esters as reactive diluents

    Author : Katarina Johansson; Mats Johansson; Rolf van Benthem; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Coatings; Coil-coatings; Thermal cure; Reactive diluents; Fatty acids; Transesterification; Hyperbranched polyester resins; Film properties; Polymer chemistry; Polymerkemi;

    Abstract : Solvent-borne thermally cured coil-coating resins contain large amounts of volatile organic solvents in order to obtain suitable flow for film application. This work describes how the expensive and environmental hazardous volatile organic solvent content of a solvent-borne thermally cured polyester/melamine coil-coating system can be reduced by introduction of fatty acid methyl esters (FAMEs) as reactive diluents and modification of the polyester binder resin.

  5. 5. Designing multicomponent alloy coatings for corrosion protection

    Author : León Zendejas Medina; Ulf Jansson; Leif Nyholm; Zoe Barber; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; corrosion; thin films; coatings; magnetron sputtering; high entropy alloy; percolation theory; mechanical tests; Chemistry with specialization in Inorganic Chemistry; Kemi med inriktning mot oorganisk kemi;

    Abstract : This thesis explores the design of metallic coatings for corrosion protection. The subject of the study was the new class of materials multicomponent alloys (MCAs, also known as high entropy alloys). They consist of near-equal concentrations of many (four or more) metals and are often reported to form a single phase with a simple crystal structure. READ MORE
