Timron Surface Modification Technologies


We will work closely with you to identify and develop surface modification techniques and processes, and surface coatings, to enhance the mechanical, electrical and the tribological properties of engineering surfaces. All surface modification procedures are carried out at laboratory and testing facilities with close ties to TSMT and under TSMTís strict guidance and supervision. All modified surfaces are characterized in accordance with a prescription defined by the designated end-use. Characterization techniques include measurements of surface roughness, composition depth profile using XPS/APS, metallurgical structure of modified surface layers, SEM/TEM analyses, surface microhardness and/or nanohardness, mechanical wear testing, corrosion resistance etc.
