LOGO Cr(VI) Hard Cr Electrodeposition Introduction Nanocrystalline Wear and Corrosion Resistant Coatings as an alternative to hard Cr deposits Eletrodeposition is a low-cost and versatile technique to form the nano- crystalline coatings, which exhibit unique properties derived from their large number of grain boundaries compared to coarse-grained surface.
LOGO Good wear resistance Nanocrystalline Ni-Co coating Introduction High hardness Good corrosion resistance
LOGO Electrochemical Corrosion Behavior Crystal Morphology &Microstructure Hardness Process of Electroplating Introduction Tribology Properties
LOGO Microstructureanalysis 2 Electroplating 1 METHODOLOGIES SEM&EDS, TEM, XRD g/lSS1SS2SS3SS4 NiSO 4 6H 2 O NiCl 2 6H 2 O CoSO 4 H 2 O 100 Additives
LOGO Hardness test Tribology test 3 METHODOLOGIES 4 Wear volume was measured by an optical 3D surface profilometer Friction and wear behaviour were tested on a reciprocating pin-on-disc TE-77 tribometer
LOGO RESULTS AND DISCUSSIONS XRD Mixed structure of fcc and hcp Mixed structure of fcc and hcp with (111)α preferred orientation Independent of the nickel salts The finest grain size (5-10nm) is obtained from the coating prepared by NiSO 4 electrolyte. TEM NiCl 2 electrolyte NiSO 4 electrolyte
LOGO RESULTS AND DISCUSSIONS SEM Morphologies NiSO 4 electrolyte Adding NiCl 2 fine granular grains lens shape lens shape NiSO 4 -dominant electrolyte
LOGO RESULTS AND DISCUSSIONS The lens morphology significantly reduces the microhardness, which leads to the increasing coefficient of friction and wear rate.

LOGO RESULTS AND DISCUSSIONS SEM Morphologies NiCl 2 electrolyte Adding NiSO 4 pyramidal crystals NiCl 2 -dominant electrolyte

LOGO CONCLUSION Wear properties of electrodeposited nanocrystalline Ni-Co coatings are affected by different kind of nickel salts in electrolyte The corresponding changes of the morphology and the crystal may lead to different wear mechanisms The coating formed from NiSO 4 electrolyte performs better tribological behaviour, which can be attributed to the finest grain size and the fine granular grain morphology. NiCl 2 can increase the internal stress.
