Surface engineered light alloys for sports equipment

J. Chen,     University of Birmingham, UK

Abstract:

The popularity of sports activities boosts the ever-increasing demands for improving sports equipment to meet various needs. There are two major methods of making advanced sports equipment – the application of advanced design and use of advanced materials. Light metals, aluminum, titanium and magnesium have been widely adopted in many sports activities because of their low density. However, these bulk light materials cannot possess all the combined desired attributes, especially their surface attributes, such as mechanical properties, wear resistance, corrosion resistance and aesthetic appearance. Therefore, surface engineering technologies ...
