Electrodeposition of Ni-SiC Nano Composite in Presence of Ultrasound
Ni-SiC nano composite coatings were fabricated using electrodeposition technique with the aid of ultrasound. The properties of the nano composite were investigated using SEM and Vicker’s microhardness tester. The results demonstrated that the microhardness of composite coatings under ultrasonic vibrations was improved significantly as compared to conventional electrodeposition techniques without ultrasound. The nano particles were found to be distributed homogeneously with reduced agglomeration due to the ultrasonic vibration.
