When corrosion protection by surface coating of metals, the hydrogen embrittlement is an omnipresent topic. This concerns above all safety-relevant components, to which particularly high strength requirements are put. Ebbinghaus Verbund sets the Zinc Thermo-Diffusion (ZTD) for the corrosion protection of bulk material parts and thus excludes this problem.
Coating coatings combine the benefits of "clean lubrication" with criteria such as wear protection and friction optimization. The limits of conventional bonded coatings lie in their abrasion resistance and load capacity, which can shorten the life of the components. Within a multi-year research project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), Klüber, Bosch, Schaeffler, a manufacturer of nanoparticles and two test institutes investigated the extent to which the performance of bonded coatings can be further increased by the addition of functionalized nanoparticles.
The corrosion protection methods known today, such as hot-dip galvanizing, burnishing, phosphating, galvanizing, are used in many areas. However, the requirements on the components increase significantly, as shown for example in salt mist spray tests. The Ebbinghaus composite therefore offers for some time, the Zinc Thermo-Diffusion (ZTD), a high-quality corrosion protection process for bulk material parts.
