WEAR RESISTANT COMPOSITE COATING
Cost-effective electrodeposited wear resistant Ni-SiC (NALNISIC) coating was successfully coated on the bore of the Trochoid of Wankel engine. CSIR-NAL developed Wankel engine was assembled in the UAV developed by VRDE, DRDO. This coating can also be adopted for diverse class of rotary and reciprocating engines. The TRL level of this coating technology is 6-7.
