Electrodeposition and Mechanical and Corrosion Resistance Properties of Tertiary Ni-W/Al2O3/CNT Nanocomposite Coatings
In this paper, the effects of the average size of nanometric particles (ASNP) from submicron scale (less than 1 µm) to nanometric scale (less than 10 nm) have been studied on the properties of nanocomposite layers which usually have not been studied or rarely studied. These properties consist of corrosion current density after long time immersion, roughness of obtained layer and distribution of nanometric particles. All of the other effective factors for fabrication of nanocomposite coatings have been fixed for better studying the effect of the ASNP. It has been seen that decreasing the ASNP will lead to lower corrosion current densities however in some cases pitting phenomena has been observed. The roughness illustrated a minimum level while the distribution of nanometric particles will be more uniform by decreasing the ASNP.
