Fabrication and Evaluation of the Nano-Ceramics Modified Epoxy Coatings


Article Preview

Several kinds of ceramic powders including SiC, TiO2 and Al2O3 were selected as fillers blending with epoxy resin, curing agent and other additives to prepare a heavy-duty and anti-wear coating. The effects of filler sort, powder size, dispersion homogeneity on the coating properties were investigated. The results showed that the wear resistance and corrosion resistance of the coating could be improved significantly after meliorating the dispersion of the ceramic particles in epoxy resin. Other mechanical properties were also studied in order to support the view on the positive effect of the nano-particles in the epoxy coating.
