NNSF SBIR AWARD
Pittsburgh, PA - 04/14/10 -- NSF has awarded an SBIR Phase I project to Ultool, LLC entitled, Environment Benign High Rate Deposition of Alloy Coatings for Electrolytic Hard Chrome. This project aims to develop hard alloy coatings as the replacement of electrolytic hard chrome (EHC) plating that utilizes hexavalent solution, a known carcinogen. In this project, a hybrid process will be used to overcome the drawbacks of low deposition rate, limited ionization, low target utilization, and strictly line of sight deposition of traditional magnetron sputtering. Chromium coatings will be deposited in a batch coater using customized deposition hardware. It is anticipated that the resulted coatings can be applied not only to new parts for wear and corrosion protection, but also to worn parts for repair.
