Abstract

The properties of traditional nickel coatings were enhanced by preparing Ni nanocomposite coatings reinforced with metal oxide nanoparticles by using electrodeposition technique. The impact of applied current density was investigated by changing SiO2 nanoparticle concentration. Phase structure study and morphological investigation of the samples were performed by X-Ray Diffractometer and Scanning Electron Microscopy, respectively. Vickers indentation method was utilized to determine the mechanical properties of obtained nanocomposite coatings. Potentiodynamic polarization technique was performed to evaluate electrochemical behavior of nanocomposite coatings. As a result, introducing SiO 2 nanoparticles to Ni matrix improves both mechanical and electrochemical properties of produced nanocomposite coatings.
