- provides a comprehensive overview of the fabrication methods for anti-abrasive nanocoatings
- discusses the connections among fabrication parameters, the characteristics of nanocoatings and the resulting properties
- reviews advantages and drawbacks of fabrication methods for anti-abrasive nanocoatings and clarifies the place of these nanocoatings in the world of nanotechnology
- introduces new applications for anti-abrasive nanocoatings
This book provides an overview of the fabrication methods for anti-abrasive nanocoatings. The connections among fabrication parameters, the characteristics of nanocoatings and the resulting properties (i.e. nanohardness, toughness, wear rate, load-bearing ability, friction coefficient, and scratch resistance) are discussed. Size-affected mechanical properties of nanocoatings are examined, including their uses. Anti-abrasive nanocoatings including metallic-, ceramic-, and polymeric-based layers as well as different kinds of nanostructures, such as multi-layered nanocomposites and thin films, are reviewed.
