Prior to working at Hempel, he served as technology director for Valspar's global industrial business including powder, liquid, and electrodeposition
The electrochemical deposition of tin and its alloys is of great practical importance and widely used in the semiconductor industry and field of energy storage devices [1-4], like lithium ion batteries; e.g., traditional electrodeposition
of tin and its alloy is performed in aqueous electrolytes including sulfate, fluoborate, and citrate [5-7].
Among nanocoating preparing methods, jet electrodeposition
(JE) technology has special advantages and has been used for local coating reaction.
technique is utilized as it attracted particular attention due to the ease of preparation, suitability for special-shaped electrodes, and low-cost requirement.
Among the several processing methodologies which have been used for the synthesis of Ni based nanocomposite coatings, the pulse electrodeposition
has turned out to be a promising coating deposition technique.
However, metal dissolution on metallic materials before monomer oxidation is the major obstacle which prevents adherent and uniform film formation on the surface using electrodeposition
of conducting polymers.
Moreover, the CuSn alloy often is the most commonly formed using template methods by chemical vapor deposition , sol-gel processing , and electrodeposition
Advances in coating technologies include contributions on tin plating, zinc-based coatings, Ni-W composites for plug connectors and Al and Pd electrodeposition
from ionic liquids.
Also, various methods of coating deposition such as thermal spray [17-19], electrodeposition
[19-21], and ion-beam processing [22-24] on the implant surface have been reviewed.
These techniques include chemical bath deposition (CBD) , vacuum evaporation, chemical vapour deposition , spray pyrolysis , sputtering , screen printing , sol-gel , close space sublimation (CSS) , and electrodeposition
The focus of R&D activities will include coating formulations, resins, polymer synthesis, and coating applications for electrodeposition
and spray-coats coatings.
