Course detail

Progressive Surface Treatment Technologies

FSI-9PTUAcad. year: 2020/2021

Special technique.Thermal spraying: theoretical principles and methods, arc, flame, plasma, high velocity methods (HVOF), consumables - metals, ceramics and cermets.
Surface treatment: oxidation methods (eloxal process), electroplating Cu, Cr, Ni, Zn, etc., chemical layers, PVD,CVD and organic coatings.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students will learn about various types of progressive surface treatments. They will be able to apply these technologies to the production of machine parts and steel structures. They will be able to apply these technologies in manufacturing practice.


Students are expected to have the following knowledge and skills when they begin the course: science of materials, physics and chemistry.
