Inventor and Invention:


PINTÉR, István dr.: Deposition of wear resistant coatings on metals


1.  The Invention


Title Deposition of wear resistant coatings on metals
The problem the inventor(s) wanted to solve  The invention aimed at the problem of the deposition of wear resistant coatings with low friction coefficient on such metal surface that has already been built in a construction.

Description. The invention presents a method in which a hardening composition is deposited on the surface of the base metals and it is embedded into the metal surface using high pressure available during preparation or application of the base metal.  The materials of the lubricants react chemically with the base metal at high pressure and forms  5-10 micrometer thick hard coating on the surface.

Presentation. Brochure

Fields of application : lubrication of railway’s rails, wheels, railroad’s and tram’s rail curves.

Advantages It forms a hard coating on metals,

Smoose the surface, traffic noise reduction,

Long lasting reduction of the friction between metals,

Highly reduces the wear-, and corrosion-rate of metals.

No harmful, or  toxical materials content, biologically degradable


Documentation available:  ( x) Yes,  brochure, fields tests of railway’s and tram’s companies
