Surface Functionalisation through Nanoscale Science

ENERGY

Energy is since the industrial revolution more and more urgent need of civilization and modern world. Still, although there are numerous alternative numerous alternative electrical power generation methods available, most of the operations around the world are using non-renewable sources of energy. Luckily in the recent decades we can observe more interest in at least some of the methods:

  • Solar power
  • Photovoltaic systems
  • Solar thermal systems
  • Solar updraft towers
  • Wind power

All these methods require reliable and long-lasting elements to be used in the production process. The parts are in most cases exposed to extreme conditions (huge temperature amplitudes, salty water, strong wind etc.). Therefore all parts have to be prepared to work efficiently in these intense environments for many years.

With the usage of our additives we can enhance the mechanical properties in such a way, that the materials could even detect corrosion and wear and at the same time be a lot more corrosion and wear resistant. Additional functionalities such as self-cleaning and self-healing should lead to longer lifespan. And what if we also add superhydrophobicity as one of the functionalities where it is needed? This should revolutionize the actual vision on securing the element for corrosion and wear.

At the same time by applying less of non-renewable resources used for electroplating processes, we really can make a difference in fighting for greener world and sustainable development.
