Volume 5 provides application-oriented information on surface engineering for a wide range of materials, topographies, and length scales. It addresses surface cleaning and preparation; coating, plating, and deposition processes; testing and characterization; and proper setup and use of equipment and instrumentation. It also includes a wealth of tabular data and graphs, describing process parameters, solution compositions, operating conditions, and finishing techniques for various irons and steels; aluminum, copper, magnesium, nickel, titanium, and zirconium alloys; and high-performance ceramics, polymers, and composites. In addition, the volume examines application-specific cases such as cutting tools, corrosive and abrasive environments, thin films, and extreme temperatures. It also covers dip, barrier, and chemical conversion coating processes, surface modification, electroplating, diffusion coating, chemical and physical vapor deposition, and other controlled-atmosphere processes.
