Standardization of the specification of vacuum evaporation, magnetron sputtering, arc ion plating, other new physical vapor deposition methods or their combination as an alternative to conventional electro/electroless plating.
Standardization of the characteristics of protective and decorative metallic (such as silver, copper, chrome, titanium and zirconium) or non-metallic coatings (such as nitrides and oxides, excluding paints and other organic coatings as well as diamond-like carbon films).
Standardization of the characteristics of inorganic nanocomposite and/or multilayer and multiphase coatings (such as multi-components nitrides and carbides of CrAlN-base, TiAlN-base, TiCN-base, MeN/SiNx, as well as boride of TiB2 and ZrB2) for functional performance (friction and wear, corrosion and oxidation, fatigue and mechanical properties).
Standardization of testing and inspection methods for physical vapor deposition coatings and pretreatment methods for metal substrates prior to the deposition.
