Title (EN) METHOD OF IMPROVING THE PERFORMANCE OF A HYDRODYNAMIC SURFACE
(FR) PROCÉDÉ D'AMÉLIORATION DES PERFORMANCES D'UNE SURFACE HYDRODYNAMIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus for use in a liquid environment has a metallic substrate material with a nodular nickel boron coating applied using an electroless plating process. Where the coated apparatus comes into contact with a fluid, the coated apparatus exhibits improved hydrodynamic performance, including decreased cavitation and erosion of the substrate. The coating also decreases the drag coefficient between the coated surface and liquid. Moreover, the surface of the coated article experiences less marine growth, and any growth that doesaccumulate is easier to remove.
(FR) Un appareil destiné à être utilisé dans un environnement liquide comporte un matériau de substrat métallique pourvu d'un revêtement de bore-nickel nodulaire appliqué à l'aide d'un processus de placage sans courant. A l'endroit où l'appareil revêtu vient en contact avec un fluide, l'appareil revêtu présente des performances hydrodynamiques améliorées, comprenant une diminution de la cavitation et de l'érosion du substrat. Le revêtement diminue également le coefficient de traînée entre la surface revêtue et le liquide. De plus, la surface de l'objet revêtu subit une moindre croissance de contaminants d'origine marine, et toute croissance qui s'accumule est plus facile à enlever.
