Research output: Patent

Abstract

A method for forming a nanocomposite coating on a substrate is described. The nanocomposite substrate comprises polyethylene, functionalized carbon nanotubes, and nanoclay. The method may use microparticles of UHMWPE with functionalized carbon nanotubes and clay nanoplatelets to form a powder mixture, which is then applied to a heated substrate to form the nanocomposite coating. The nanocomposite coating may have a Vickers hardness of 10.5-12.5 HV and a debonding strength of at least 25 N.
