Summary:

Plasma chemical advanced composite materials and nanofibers coatings with enhanced properties Plasma chemical work revealed an innovative approach, to nano volume change by high ionization of plasma stream effecting realization catalysis at high-energy irradiation ions by deep penetration of target nanomaterials into firm matrix, with no matrix material resistance to penetration, and creation of massive composite materials on nano level. Processes were firstly evaluated by a computerized simulation model and carried out by instruments of plasma chemical, plasma laser, electromagnetic-field, HF or UHF plasma. Instruments, designed and produced inhouse, and allow change of existing metals, alloys, ceramic, glass or plastic polymers, in a firm body, and transformation to a composite material or nanofibers coatings with a predetermined properties such as enhanced electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, dielectric, corrosion resistance etc. Process is of high productivity and a low raw materials cost. Among products evaluated are 40mm penetration of Pb nano particles into aluminum alloy matrix with no matrix resistance to penetration (see picture), Pb particles penetrating 40 mm depth into aluminum alloy by plasma chemical system . By similar method, on steel or magnesium alloys or plastic, achieve enhanced impact, stretching, corrosion resistance for automotive railways, aviation, marine, nuclear industry, armored steel etc. On aluminum or copper wires superior anisotropy electric conductivity and superior mechanical strength. Bullet-proof ceramic vests. Precise and adherent nanofibers coatings.
