Why is it important?

This study is significant in terms of extending service life.


This work is conducted in collaboration with academic partners in China and has led to further study to extend to anti-wear and anti-corrosion TiO2 coatings. This work has led to securing global visiting fellowship funding £38,167 to continue joint research between two Universities.
