Research Progress in Wear-Resistant Nanocomposite Coatings by Electroless Nickel
Electroless nickel has been used to prepare composite coatings with embedded nanoparticles. Surfactants and agitation methods have marginal effects on the deposition behavior of electroless composite coatings. Many researchers have investigated the influences of nanoparticles including WC, SiC, Al2O3 and diamond on the tribological properties of composite coatings. The present article reviewed mainly the advancement of electroless Ni-P nanocomposite coatings in recent years. The existing problems and the suggestions for the further study of composite coatings were indicated.
