    The goalLearning all steps in deposition of protective coatings, mechanism of their deposition, as well as properties of metallic, conversion and non-metallic coatings. ; Modern methods in deposition and corrosion protection by conversion, metallic and non-metallic coatings and ability to distinguish the difference in protection achieved by non-metallic and metallic coatings. ; Acquiring theoretical background in metal surface modification and protective properties of the protective system based on the modified metal/organic coating.
    The outcomeStudent acquired theoretical knowledge of types of conversion, metallic and non-metallic coatings, their deposition processes and properties. ; Student learnt to propose the type of plating coatings and deposition parameters depending on the desired coating property.
    Contents of lectures• The metal surface pretreatment prior to coatings deposition (mechanical, chemical and electrochemical methods) ; • Electrochemical deposition of protective metallic coatings (deposition of metal and alloy coatings) ; • Electroless deposition of metallic coatings ; • Conversion coatings (phosphate, oxide, chromate, oxalate coatings, mixed conversion coatings) ; • Deposition of organic protective coatings ; • Cataphoretic deposition of organic coatings (mechanism of deposition and the influence od cataphoretic deposition prameters on the coatings protective properties) ; • Corrosion stability of protective coatings (the influence of type of the metal substrate and its modification on the corrosion stability of protective system, the mechanism of electrolyte penetration through organic coating).
    Contents of exercises• The metal surface modification by conversion and metallic coatings and formation of complete protective system by deposition of organic coating on modified metal substrate ; • The influence of metal substrate modification on the corrosion stability of protective system ; • The influence of metal substrate modification on the adhesion of organic coating. ;
