Abstract
THIS PROGRAM WILL INVESTIGATE THE PREPARATION OF CORROSION AND FRICTION REDUCTION COATINGS FOR PIPELINE PROTECTION PREPARED BY STATE-OFTHE-ART PLASMA METHODS. PLASMA TECHNIQUES CAN PRODUCE COATINGS OF CERAMIC-LIKE MATERIALS WITH HIGH ABRASION RESISTANCE. THEIR CHEMICAL UNREACTIVITY AND UNIFORMITY OF COVERAGE ALLOWS THEM TO FUNCTION AS EFFECTIVE BARRIER COATINGS FOR CORROSION PROTECTION. DIAGNOSTIC AND REAL-TIME PROCESS CONTROL METHODS WILL BE DEVELOPED TO MAKE THE PROCEDURES A VIABLE PRODUCTION METHOD.
