Diamond chrome plating?


Dear sirs,

I want information about "diamond chrome plating". In this method, it use from nanodiamond powder in chrome plating solution, and with deposition chrome on base metal, diamond deposit, too; and coating is been very hard.I want information about details of method.

Thanking you,

The details of how to successfully implement composite plating with diamond particles tend to still be licensable trade secrets, Saeid. You would need to contact a firm which licenses the process. An expert might tell you the details for a one-time fee, and you might try contacting Dr. Ned Mandich, who co-authored the paper "Codeposition of Nano Diamonds with Chromium" published in Metal Finishing.

Dear Sir/Madam:

Nanodiamonds are a new category of synthetic super-solid material that provides the mechanical and chemical benefits of diamonds (hardness, density, chemical inertness, etc.) in a consistent and narrow submicron size range. Nanodiamonds are extremely small spherical particles the diameter of each nanodiamond is in the range from 4-8 nanometers (approximately 1/1000 the size of commercially available synthetic "diamond powders").

Commercial applications of nanodiamonds are based on the principles of dispersive hardening and strengthening of materials and coatings due to the integration of the nanodiamonds into the matrix of the basic materials (metals, polymers, ceramics, lubricants, etc.) The nanodiamonds provide enhanced hardness, strength, anti-friction surface characteristics and improved adhesion to the surface structures.

The utilization of nanodiamonds requires only minor modifications to the typical plating process.

Nanodiamond applications in metal plating often refer to the incorporation of the nanodiamond into the metal matrix. It has been demonstrated that it is possible to utilize nanodiamond as a catalyst to improve hardness and other properties as well. In this way, the cost of nanodiamond in the metal plating bath can be significantly extended.

Dear sirs/madams

As you all know and there is no need to describe, ND can represent good properties to many metal platings.
Now we can do it in iran for some metals in research scale.

Yes. ND got many great properties and is suitable for many applications. Besides, the production cost of ND material has been getting reasonable. So it's right time to put it into use to promote traditional industries.
