New Challenges for Industrial Tribological Coatings

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talkResearch


Whilst there are continuing technological
breakthroughs pushing new coating and surface
treatment developments, there are also regulatory, legislative and
performance demands which act to pull-through developments in
surface processes and coatings with particular attributes to meet the
challenges faced by manufacturing industry. It is therefore important
that coating companies and those developing coatings work together
with these end-user companies and become integrated into the
product development programs; this includes becoming embedded
into the end-user’s in-house testing and validation systems. Examples
are provided of end-user test programs for new coatings and the
methodologies and philosophies driving the adoption of new coatings
by major manufacturing organisations.
