Friction & Wear Technology
Surface Modification and characterization, and friction and wear assessment.

Protective Surface Modification for High Temp. Alloys--dramatic increase in corrosion resistance of protective scale, by vapor deposition of silicon and high temperature heat treatment--feasible for treating large areas. (Jong Hee Park 708-252-5104)

Boric-Oxide/Acid coatings--dramatically effective high temperature bearing lubricant (R&D 100)
Diamond-like carbon on steel or ceramics--reduce friction and wear in bearings, fuel injectors, etc.
