Nanocoatings can save energy, costs

Abstract:
In 2003, nanostructured carbide-derived carbon (CDC) technology for sliding and rotating equipment received an R&D 100 award. CDC is grown with graphite, diamond, amorphous carbon and carbon "nano-onions" - small carbon structures with concentric rings, resembling an onion. These components vary from 2 to 10 nanometers in thickness. Industrial partners are interested in using the coating to seal water pumps in automotive engines to prevent dry-run failure and extend the engine's lifetime. (third article)
