Presently there are lot of materials that can be used in the fabrication of any item, so choosing a material is a major criteria. So the materials are chosen depending on the properties desired by the resulting item. The composite materials have better properties when compared with its individual components, metals and ceramics. The overall appeal of the product depends mainly on its durability, aesthetics and its final cost. Composite materials are cost effective and significantly satisfy the needs of the clients. By utilizing composite materials we can obtain high strength to weight ratio at a relatively economical cost. Moreover, they can be produced easily by basic part forming. Hybrid polymer composites have been studied of late which improves a specific property of the composite that is under question. Here a hybrid composite made of laminate of Nomex and HS glass sheets with varying percentage (1% - 2.5 %) of bisphenol dispersed in resin is prepared. The same samples were subjected to cryogenic treatment (24 hrs and 72 hrs). The results of tensile strength, flexural strength and hardness were compared for all the specimens 24 hrs cryogenic, 72hrs cryogenic and non-treated specimens. The results showed that the hardness of the cryogenic treated bisphenol based PMCs has increased with the weight percentage of Bisphenol indicating the fact that the laminates can withstand more loads at subzero temperatures The increase observed was about 3 – 4 % more in terms of BHN number. At the same time the tensile and flexural strengths have considerably reduced after treating the PMC cryogenically as the laminates becomes more brittle when treated. The tensile strength increased by about 10% approximately and the flexural strength reduced by 300%

E., “Effect of Electroless Nickel (EN) Coating on Mechanical Properties of Al-6061”, International Journal of Mechanical and Production Engineering Research and Development (IJMPERD), vol. 9, no. 4, pp. 129-136, 2019.[Abstract]


Al-6061 and Nickel, individually serve for various requirements of their multitude mechanical characteristics and ideal chemical properties. In present scenario, Al-6061 has captured the attention of both academia and industrialists’ interest for its usage in multiple fields such as transportation, construction and similar engineering industries. The primary intention of this research is to investigate the properties of mechanical strength ofAl-6061 subjected to Electroless Nickel (EN) coating. The test specimens are prepared as per ASTM norms, and have been evaluated by the addition of EN coating layers of thicknesses 0µ, 2µ, 4µ, 6µ and 8µ. The EN coated specimens are tested for investigating various mechanical properties. These investigations are performed as per ASTM standards. The results thus obtained reveal that, the properties of mechanical strength, such as elastic strength and UTS increases up to 6µ thickness of EN coated specimen. The characteristics viz. hardness and impact energy absorption of a material increases with higher EN coating layer thickness. It has been observed that there is improvement in the properties of Al6061 coated with EN when compared to the other coated materials as well as non-coated Al-6061. The EN coated Al6061finds its broad applications in the field of structural and defence/aviation sectors.
