Exploratory Award

Proposal number EXAW-1999-01072

AcronymNEPCAP

Proposal titleNANO-CRYSTALLINE ELECTRO-DEPOSITS - THEIR PROCESSING, CHARACTER

AND PROPERTIES.

AbstractThe European plating industry, with a high proportion of SMEs, uses many processes

which are becoming increasingly subject to environmentally restrictions. A innovative new

approach to electroplating is proposed which will develop new coatings based on

nano-crystalline or amorphous structure rather than specific alloy composition. In order

to achieve this goal generic research on the formation of such structures is required

together with new technologies to control the coating properties. Such a task is unlikely to

be undertaken by the SMEs in the industrial sector alone, due to lack of research facilities.

The opportunity therefore arises to perform this innovative research and for the findings

to be used by the SMEs to generate a new series of coatings. Coatings are expected with

properties suitable for the protection of steel components in the automotive or hydraulics

industries or with specific electrical or magnetic properties for use in the electronics

sector.

Key ActionGROW-5.   RTD activities of a generic nature : Materials and their technologies for

production and transformation and new and improved materials and production technologies

in the steel field
