ABSTRACT

This review article is written on the investigations of nanomechanical properties of coatings by using nanoindentation techniques. The focus is on the studies that were conducted on epoxy polymer, silicones and their hybrid materials. The article describes a large number of developmental studies that are conducted on coatings. Materials properties such as nanoindentation hardness, modulus, scratch, wear and viscoelastic behavior have been described. Moreover, the article summarizes various studies that mention the use of different nanoparticles in coating formulations that could improve the mechanical strength and service life span of the coatings. The mode and mechanism of material’s failure has been outlined and discussed.
