Properties of Pulse Plating Ni-SiC Nano-Composite Coating
A Ni-SiC nano-composite plating coating was prepared by using composite plating technology adding nano-SiC in the bath.Then the surface morphology was examined by scanning electron microscope (SEM), the transmission electron microscope (TEM) was used to study the grain size,the porosity, corrode-resistant, combines intensity and wearability of the composite plating coating were also tested and contrasted the result with the pure nickel coating. The results shows the surface of Ni-SiC composite coating are more uniform and compact for the adding of nano-Sic refined the grain, the wear resistance,microhardness and corrosion resistance of the composite coating are also significantly improved.
