Surface Cleaning and Protection

Lead Research Organisation: University of Cambridge
Department Name: Chemistry


This project builds on existing research using abrasive blasting to clean and prepare metal substrates for painting to prevent inhibit corrosion. We will exploit a novel idea to use abrasive blasting as a way of depositing a protective layer on the metal surface. The aim is to combine 'hard' and 'soft' materials to clean and also seal the metal surfaces. The composition of the abrasive blasting materials (how much hard and soft), the blasting pressure and blasting time will all be considered to prepare particular protecting layers which will then be tested using electrochemical studies.
