Resumen:
Una de las principales instituciones de investigación científica de Lituania especializada en investigación básica y desarrollo tecnológico en los campos científicos de tecnologías láser, optoelectrónica, física nuclear, química orgánica, bio y nanotecnologías, etc. ofrece un revestimiento anódico antiarañazos obtenido mediante oxidación electroquímica de aleaciones. Estos revestimientos presentan una excelente dureza, resistencia a la corrosión y pintabilidad pero debido a la alta fricción su aplicación en contactos tribológicos es limitada. La tecnología ofrecida mejora los revestimientos anódicos mediante la aplicación de rellenos que garantizan una alta resistencia al desgaste. La entidad busca socios con el fin de establecer acuerdos de joint venture, comercialización con asistencia técnica o investigación.

Tittle:
Anodic nano coating technology enabling resistance to wear
Summary:
One of the largest scientific research institutions in Lithuania carrying out a unique fundamental research and technological development in scientific fields of laser technologies, optoelectronics, nuclear physics, organic chemistry, bio and nanotechnologies and other areas in this field. They are offering developed an anodic anti-scratch coating obtained by electrochemical oxidation of alloys under a joint venture, commercial agreement with technical support or research cooperation agreement.
Description:
The anodic coatings on aluminum are obtained by electrochemical oxidation of alloys. They show excellent hardness, corrosion resistance and paintability. However, due to high friction their application in tribological contacts is limited. The proposed technology improves the anodized coatings by applying fillers, which assure high resistance to wear. The process consists of two stages: 1) Hard anodizing to obtain nanopores of 15-50 nm in diameter and 2) impregnation of a proprietary anti-wear filler into the nanopores. Stage 1 can be performed on conventional (Type III) anodization line using hard anodizing electrolyte. Stage 2 in this technology must involve an impregnation bath with the anti-wear filler at 60°C. Consequently, energy demand would be equivalent or slightly higher than that of a standard hard anodizing process.

Anti-wear technology has been validated in field applications. Initial attempts focused on using this technology for ring-free pistons in speed model cars. In their engines, aluminum alloy piston slides directly over the cylinder wall, which is also made of aluminum alloy. Field tests of the technology pistons have shown that engine service life improves dramatically. While standard pistons need one or two replacements in every race because of excessive wear, the anti-wear technology pistons did not show visual surface damage even after 3 races without any replacement.

The research institution developing this technology is looking for a research cooperation, joint venture or commercial agreement that would enable further advance in this technology development and application.
Advantages and Innovations:
It is expected that anti-wear technology will be validated in ring-containing pistons of sport aircraft engines. Pistons that had this technology applied to them did not show any problems during on-ground tests in engine stands. Trials using high-torque regime are in preparation.
Compared to other technologies, this new anti-wear technology stands out due to its ability to restore worn-out units. In addition, this technology does not need particularly expensive equipment. It must be noted that anodic anti-wear coating is formed within the aluminum substrate itself therefore it minimises the need for additional coating equipment making it inexpensive application.
This technology can make it possible to reduce friction within moving parts and dramatically improve their wear resistance.
