Project Details


The project deals with surface modifications of steel and titanium based materials to improve corrosion and abrasion resistance. The scope is to provide the fundamental and technical data necessary to develop new CVD (chemical vapour deposition) and electrochemical based processes.
The elements to be used in surface coatings are mainly titanium, niobium, zirconium, boron, carbon and nitrogen - either in the pure form or in combination such as alloys or borides, nitrides and carbides. These materials show in general high corrosion resistance and a good biocompatibility. The borides, carbides and nitrides are materials with large hardness. Our approach to the formation of the mentioned surfaces are for the main part entirely new and unexplored. In the choice of reaction media we will try to minimize possible environmental and health hazards.
