  • Nickelmultiwalled carbon nanotube composite coating on aluminum alloy rotor for textile industries
    A Selvakumar, R Perumalraj, J Sudagar, and S Mohan

    Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part L: Journal of Materials: Design and Applications, ISSN: 14644207, eISSN: 20413076, Volume: 230, Pages: 319-327, Published: February 2016 SAGE Publications
    Nickel-based multiwalled carbon nanotube (Ni–MWCNT) composite coatings were electrodeposited over the inner groove of an aluminim alloy rotor with Zn–Ni interlayer. The surface of the composite coating was investigated by X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy. The hardness of the coating was determined by Vicker's method. It was revealed that Ni–MWCNT composite coating has uniformity in thickness over the surface of the aluminim groove and also better particle distribution over the area. It was found that there was a significant improvement in the microhardness values of Ni–MWCNT composite coating than uncoated aluminum alloy rotor. In addition, the wear resistance of the composite coated increased nine times than the uncoated substrate. Thus, Ni–MWCNT composite coated aluminum alloy rotor can enhance the performance and life-time of the rotor in the textile industries.

  • Electroless NiP-MWCNT composite coating for textile industry application

    NiP–multiwall carbon nanotube composite coatings were deposited on a textile component at ∼14 µm thickness through electroless plating route. The composites were prepared by depositing four different concentrations of multiwall carbon nanotube (i.e. 100, 200, 300 and 400 mg L–1) in an electroless bath over four NiP substrates. The NiP–multiwall carbon nanotube composite coating was observed to have a remarkably lower surface roughness and higher micro-hardness – by about 50% in both cases – in comparison with the NiP electroless plated substrate without the incorporation of multiwall carbon nanotube. In addition to that, there was a 14% reduction in yarn to metal friction between the investigated cases. This particular enhancement was adduced to the addition of surfactant to the electrolytic bath. The superior homogeneity in the distribution of multiwall carbon nanotube in the nickel matrix and the formation of the Ni–C bond were also identified to drive the multiwall carbon nanotube towards much improved properties.
