Call for industrial partners: Collaborative project in the area of conductive and anti-corrosive coatings for bulk goods (fasteners)
Summary:
A German research institution and its partners have developed a solution for coating of small parts on an industrial scale (e.g. metallic fasteners) based on physical vapour deposition (PVD). This development has focused on fasteners for the car industry. The research institution is looking for research cooperation with industrial partners in order to merge both, scientific and practical experience in applications-oriented projects (e.g.joint development of specific structure of layer systems).
Description:
A research institution from Germany and its partners have developed a solution that focusses on the improvement of anti-corrosive and electrically conductive properties of fasteners for e.g. the car industry. The development is available for coating of small parts on an industrial scale (e.g. metallic fasteners) based on physical vapour deposition (PVD). With it, it is possible to produce 10 µm aluminium-based anti-corrosive coatings on small batches of fasteners in a roughly one-hour coating procedure. Thus new competitive products can result.

Beside corrosion protection, additional functionality is required by the industry, especially for composites and mixed materials. PVD layers have been proven to be superior to other anti-corrosion coatings for these applications.

The research institute and its working group intend to dedicate themselves in the future to further improving the electrical, mechanical and anti-corrosion properties of coatings. Coating architectures with intermediate layers of a second metal can be realized for this purpose and their mechanical and electrical properties will be investigated with regard to applications.

Now the institute is looking for partners from industry, that are involved with scaling up to actual industrial requirements and are interested to develop coatings according their needs and to cooperate in terms of a research cooperation.
Advantages and Innovations:
The developed solution is focused on the improvement of anti-corrosive and electrically conductive properties of fasteners for the car industry.

Main advantages are:
- Save of weight and conservation of natural resources
- Possibility to produce 10 µm aluminium-based anti-corrosive coatings on small batches of fasteners
- Time saving -> production in a roughly one-hour coating procedure
- Continuous evolution of components together with the use of new construction materials -> places new demands on fasteners and their surfaces
- Many options -> with respect to material combinations for various functional layer stacks

Besides corrosion protection, additional functionality is being demanded of coatings, especially for composite and dissimilar materials. For example, equalization of electrical voltages between various component groups is taking place via microcurrents across multiple component interfaces. This equalization benefits from minimum electrical contact resistances.
