Application in Materials Science and Engineering
Mitigation and elimination of changes and damages on the surface of metallic materials
In nature and engineering practice, metal machines, equipment and parts need to withstand various external loads and produce various forms and degrees of surface changes and damage.
Engineering materials and components often have microscopic or macroscopic defects on their surfaces, and surface defects become the source of reduced mechanical properties, corrosion resistance, and wear resistance of materials. The use of surface technology can slow down the material surface changes and damage, masking surface defects, can improve the reliability of engineering materials and components, and extend the service life.
Obtaining surfaces with special functions
Using surface technology to obtain the properties of certain rare precious metals (such as gold, platinum, tantalum, etc.) and special elements (such as nickel, cobalt, chromium, etc.) on the surface of ordinary inexpensive materials, thus saving these precious metal materials. For example, the addition of Cr to Cu can improve the resistance of Cu, and the laser surface alloying process can obtain a surface alloy layer with a molar fraction of 8% and a thickness of about 240 nm on the surface of Cu, which can greatly improve the resistance; the use of ion-injection technology to inject Cr⁺ and Ta⁺ into Cu can improve the resistance of Cu in H₂S. tolerance in H₂S.
Energy saving, cost reduction and environmental improvement
The use of surface engineering technology to form coatings with excellent properties on the surface of workpieces can achieve improved thermal efficiency and reduced energy consumption. For example, thermal equipment and parts used in high-temperature environments can achieve smaller heat loss and save fuel by applying thermal insulation coatings to their surfaces. Replacing the heavily polluting technology with advanced and environmentally friendly surface technology can improve the operating environment and meet the stipulated environmental requirements.
Indispensable means of remanufacturing engineering
Remanufacturing engineering is a systematic way to restore the size and improve the performance of important parts due to wear, corrosion, fatigue, fracture and other causes of local failure parts, using advanced surface engineering technology with high quality, high efficiency, low cost and less pollution. Obviously, remanufacturing engineering can greatly reduce the waste of energy, raw materials and funds caused by the acquisition of new products, inventory of spare parts and management and downtime, and greatly reduce the amount of environmental pollution and waste disposal. As a result, remanufacturing engineering has rapidly developed into an emerging discipline.

In order to improve the performance of materials, it is necessary to pay attention to the preparation and synthesis technology of materials, such as surface technology, thin-film technology and nanotechnology, which is currently emerging. The development and improvement of surface technology will put forward many new academic subjects, and the research of these subjects has strongly promoted the development of basic disciplines such as material science, metallurgy, mechanics, mechanical manufacturing processes, and physics and chemistry.
Application in Corrosion and Protection
Corrosion is the interaction between metal materials and environmental media resulting in damage, corrosion always starts from the interface between the material and the environment contact. As the materials used in the manufacture of machinery and equipment are always in some kind of environmental service, affecting material corrosion of many factors, any one material can not guarantee that in all environments are corrosion-resistant.
Three factors need to be considered when selecting a material for fabrication:
- The corrosion resistance of the material in the environment in which it is expected to serve;
- Physical, mechanical and process properties of the material:
- Economic factors.
These three aspects need to be balanced. Therefore, the goal of corrosion control is not “no corrosion”, but “to control the corrosion of machinery, equipment or components to a reasonable and acceptable level.
Protection methods include electrochemical protection, regulation of environmental conditions (mainly the use of corrosion inhibitors), cover layer protection. In this way, the base material and the cover material form a composite material, which can fully develop the advantages of the base material and the cover material to meet the needs of corrosion resistance, physical, mechanical and processing properties and give economic indicators. As the structural material of the substrate is not in direct contact with the corrosive environment, it is possible to choose materials with good physical, mechanical and processing properties and low prices, such as carbon steel and low-alloy steel. The cover layer material instead of the base material in a corroded position, the first consideration should be its corrosion resistance performance requirements.
Overlay protection is the most widely used type of protection technology. There are many types of overlay protection, which can be divided into the following three categories according to the nature of the overlay material:
The cover layer material of metal cladding is metal, and the implementation methods include plating, lining and bimetallic composite plate, etc. Plating has electroplating, chemical plating, spraying, infiltration plating, hot dip plating, vacuum plating, etc.
Non-metallic cover layer
Non-metallic cover layer includes many types, such as paint coating, plastic coating, enamel, steel lining glass, non-metallic lining, temporary anti-rust layer, etc.
Chemical conversion film
The formation of chemical conversion film is a liquid to solid chemical reaction process, the reaction process is to make the metal surface inorganic salt, the base material provides the reacting cation, the solution provides the reacting anion and part of the deposited cation, these dense base metal on the inorganic salt deposition layer to give the surface a variety of special properties.

Additionally, if there are any defects or cracks in the surface, these need to be addressed as well. After this has been completed, you can move on to measuring the surface area in order to determine how much of the treatment needs to be applied.
The last step is masking techniques which involve covering up areas that don’t need to be treated with tape or other materials so they don’t come into contact with the treatment solution. This helps ensure that only specific areas are affected by the treatment and that everything else remains unaffected.
By following these three steps before applying a surface treatment, you can guarantee that everything goes smoothly and that you get professional results every time!
Application Methods Of The Treatment
Now that the surface is prepared for treatment application, it’s time to discuss the various methods of applying the treatment. As a surface treatment specialist, I’m familiar with several methods used to apply different treatments. These application techniques include brushing, spraying, dipping, and rolling.
Brushing involves manually brushing on the coating material onto a prepared surface. It is a great way to apply coatings in hard-to-reach areas or when you need precise control over where the coating goes. This process can be tedious and time consuming in some cases but it’s often necessary to get into tight spaces or uneven surfaces.
Spraying is another popular method of applying coatings and treatments. This technique uses either airless or air-assisted sprayers which atomize the liquid material and disperse it evenly over a large area. This method is often used for larger projects and can be beneficial because it requires less labor than manual brushing or rolling techniques.
Finally, dipping and rolling are two other techniques which can be used for treating specific surfaces. Dipping involves submerging the object into a solution containing the treatment material, while rolling involves adding pressure with a roller to spread out the coating evenly over an entire surface area. Both methods are effective at providing coverage but may require additional finishing work depending on the type of material being applied.
Surface treatments must be applied correctly in order for them to work effectively so understanding these application processes is essential for any successful project involving these materials.
