A practical guide to help engineers and designers select the best possible surface treatments for corrosion and wear control.
Published: December 31, 2001
Authors: Compiled by Michael and Irene Ash
An International Guide to more than 3800 Corrosion- and Rust-Inhibiting Chemicals by Trade Name, Chemical Component, Function, Application, and Manufacturer Target information on components by: Trade Name * Chemical Name * Synonym * Function * Application * CAS Number * EINECS Number * Manufacturer Coverage includes chemicals that function as:
Machine component wear is one of the costliest problems within industry. In fact, a 1997 survey in the UK placed wear costs at 25% of turnover, or approximately $1 billion. In many cases, making design and or material changes can reduce this cost by 50% or more!
Surface Hardening of Steels: Understanding the Basics is a practical selection guide to help engineers and technicians choose the most efficient surface hardening techniques that offer consistent and repeatable results. Emphasis is placed on characteristics such as processing temperature, case/coating thickness, bond strength, and hardness level obtained.

This book addresses the problem of surface protection for aircraft engine turbine blades. It is based on the author's 30+ years of work on the development and application of coatings to protect against oxidation and hot corrosion. It describes and details a methodology for optimizing turbine blade surface protection.
