Surface Modification by Developing Coating and Cladding

  • Dheerendra Kumar Dwivedi


To enhance the tribological life of substrate, the development of a layer of good quality material (having required set of properties) on the substrate is an effective method. The layer can be deposited in the form of films, coatings, hardfacings, and claddings using variety of the processes such as weld surfacing, laser cladding, thermal spraying, electroplating, and electroless plating. In this chapter, fundamental of these aspects has been presented.
