Carbon nanotube coating on steel & aluminum textile machinery parts
February 10, 2012
Q. I am selvakumar, PhD research candidate in anna university, coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India.
I plan to give a nano coating over textile machinery spare parts made of aluminium and carbon steel materials.
I need suggestions in that work.
Is it possible to give multiwall carbon nanocoating over such materials? If so, what will be the intermetallic bond?
Please give your valuable suggestions.

How to nano coat silver coinsJanuary 16, 2020
Q. Hello, what is the process of getting a carbon coating on the surface of silver metal? Have tried hot caustic lye on copper, zinc, and magnesium metals, but the same process does not seem to produce a dull or blackened surface on silver.

A. Hi James. Can you please give us a paragraph or two of introduction to this technology because I don't know what you're talking about :-(
I would not have thought it possible to create a carbon nano-coating on metals by immersion in hot caustic, but I'm not up on the rapidly evolving field of carbon nano-coatings.
