Appearance of thin films on steel: development on characterisation of modelsystems.

    Project Details


    In several architectural and decorative applications, the metallic look of the metal is preserved. Instead of a paintlayer a transparant organic layer is applied to protect underlaying metal from its environment. Environmental and health measurements stimulate the use of aqueous colloidal dispersions to cast the layer. This layer will influene the intensity of light reflected of the surface and also the spectral properties of the surface. the goal of this project is to systematically study consists of a steelsubstrate, a (native and/or deposited) oxide layer and a thin (
