Nickel composites with co-deposited insoluble, solid lubricant particles such as MoS2 have been reported to reduce friction. It is known that hydrogen evolution reaction (HER), competes with nickel deposition. The influence of the parameters and their interaction effects on the peak current density of HER during the electrodeposition of Ni and Ni-MoS2 composite coatings were studied by fractional factorial design. The parameters and their ranges studied were; MoS2 particle concentration (0-30 g/l), temperature (30-50 degrees C), pH (2-4) and two surfactants, namely; ammoniumlignosulfonate (ALS) and depramin-C (DC) (0-1 g/l). Electrodeposition processes were carried out from a typical Watts bath containing leveler, wetting agent and brightener by using a potentiostat. The peak current densities (i(p)) were extended to higher values and the peaks on linear sweep voltammograms became noticeable by increasing the scan rate from 20 mV/s to 100 mV/s over the range of 0 to 2.5 V. The peak current densities (i(p)) of HER for each experimental route were determined by fractional factorial design for two mineral processing surfactants; ammoniumlignosulfonate (ALS) and depramin-C (DC) using a statistical analysis software named Minitab [1]. Adding MoS2, decreasing temperature and increasing pH had decreasing effects on the peak current density of HER regardless of the surfactant used. On the other hand, the surfactants increased the peak current density.

EFFECT OF ELECTROPLATING PARAMETERS ON "HER" CURRENT DENSITY IN Ni-MoS2 COMPOSITE PLATING
Guler, Ebru Saraloglu; Karakaya, İshak; KONCA, ERKAN (2012-03-15)
Nickel composites with co-deposited insoluble, solid lubricant particles such as MoS2 have been reported to reduce friction. It is known that hydrogen evolution reaction (HER), competes with nickel deposition. The influence of the electroplating parameters and their interaction effects on the peak current density for HER were studied by fractional factorial design. The parameters and their ranges were; MoS2 concentration (0-30 g/l), temperature (30-50 degrees C), pH (2-4) and surfactants (0-1 g/l). Electrod...
Effect of cold rolling and annealing parameters on the microstructure and mechanical properties of dual phase steels
Poyraz, Okan; Ögel, Bilgehan; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2020)
This study consists of change in the microstructure and mechanical properties of the 0.14C-1.98Mn steel with different cold rolling ratios, annealing temperature and annealing time. The starting sheet metal is 2.8mm thick and have a microstructure of ferrite-pearlite in as-received condition. Samples are cold rolled such that either 30%, 45% or 60% cold rolling is achieved. In order to see the change in microstructure below and in the intercritical temperatures, samples are annealed for 5 minutes or 10 minu...
Effects of nanoparticles on thermal degradation of polylactide/aluminium diethylphosphinate composites
Kaya, Hatice; Özdemir, Esra; Kaynak, Cevdet; Hacaloğlu, Jale (2016-03-01)
We investigated the thermal degradation characteristics of polylactide (PLA) aluminium diethylphosphinate (AlPi) composites involving SiO2, halloysite (HNT) and organically modified montmorillonite (OMMT) via direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry. Presence of nanoparticles, SiO2, HNT and OMMT affected both thermal stability and relative yields of thermal degradation products of PLA/AlPi. The transesterification reactions and interactions between PLA and AlPi were depressed in the presence of SiO2 and HNT. The ...
Effects of glass fiber reinforcement and thermoplastic elastomer blending on the mechanical performance of polylactide
Varsavas, S. Deniz; Kaynak, Cevdet (2018-06-01)
The purpose of this study was to investigate how optimum mechanical properties (strength-modulus-toughness) of inherently very brittle polylactide (PLA) could be obtained by reinforcing with E-glass fibers (GF) and blending with thermoplastic polyurethane elastomer (TPU). Composites and blends were compounded by twin-screw extruder melt mixing, while specimens were shaped by injection molding. SEM analyses revealed that 15 wt% GF and 10 wt% TPU domains, alone and together, could be uniformly distributed in ...
Effect of surface treatment on electrical conductivity of carbon black filled conductive polymer composites
Koysuren, Ozcan; Yesil, Sertan; Bayram, Göknur (Wiley, 2007-06-05)
Two different types of surface modifiers, 3-aminopropyltriethoxysilane and formamide, were applied to carbon black (CB) particles to lower electrical resistivity of polymer composites prepared by treated CB. Two different matrices, low-density polyethylene and nylon 6, were chosen to compound with surface modified CB. Surface energy of CB was increased by adding amine or amide functional groups during surface treatment of CB. According to electron spectroscopy for chemical analysis (ESCA), chemical modifica...
