Eliminating corrosion Return to case studies page

Varsha Lal and Adrian Trinchi – ANFF Victorian node
The Melbourne Centre for Nanofabricaiton and CSIRO are working together in engineering coatings to obtain zero charge on the surface thus eliminating corrosion.

The High Throughput Inorganic Coatings (HTIC) research team at CSIRO has been developing novel two, three and four layered coatings of various metal oxide compounds. These oxide formulations have been deposited from positions to yield unique combinations of layered gradient coatings. These coatings are being developed for use in sensing and in anti-corrosion structural protection. Of particular importance in developing anti-corrosion oxides is measuring the surface charge of the coating versus pH; the Surpass Zeta Potential analyzer at the MCN was utilized for this project.
