ARCI scientists develop friction-reducing nanocomposite coatings

News:International Advanced Research Centre for Powder Metallurgy & New Materials(ARCI), an autonomous R&D center of the Department of Science & Technology(DST) have developed a process for size-selective deposition of nanocomposite coatings.


About Nanocomposite coatings:

  • Nanocomposite coatings are formed by mixing two or more dissimilar materials at nanoscale to improve the physical, chemical and physicochemical properties of the new materials.
  • The unique characteristics of nanocomposite coatings include enhanced mechanical strength, weight reduction, improved barrier properties and increased heat, wear, and scratch resistance for lifelong performance
