Area of study: electrochemistry.

The purpose and main objectives of research: improving the process of chromium using inductively-capacitance device (ICD), determine the degree of influence of the parameters ICD (L, C) on the deposition process and properties of the coatings and the feasibility of these devices is the deposition of chromium and other coatings.

Scientific novelty and originality of research. First established: the influence of parameters on the polarization of the electrode ICD and range of the variable components, with a more positive potential of the cathode (Lop, Cop) increases the current output, structure of the coating becomes more uniform with smaller units, with Lop, Cop had more wear resistant coatings obtained by iК = 8.5kA/m2 that provides an increase in deposition rate of precipitation from 30 to 82 microns/hour. It is shown that changing the conditions of electrolysis, it is possible to obtain new materials (patent MD 4031 C1 2010.04.30).

The theoretical significance. We confirmed the hypothesis of the possibility of galvanic process control parameters change inductance-capacitance devices. It is assumed that the increase in current efficiency is due to the change in thickness and structure of the colloidal film, which facilitates the diffusion process. Deposition of coatings with a homogeneous structure and smaller aggregates seem to be caused by the diffusion changes that help to increase the number of crystallization centers. The increase of microhardness and wear resistance of coatings suggests a heightened role of the border units in the process of deformation and fracture of deposition.

Implementation of scientific results. Recommendations of the thesis can be realized by designing and implementing processes for chrome car parts, which increases the deposition rate of 2,5 times the wear resistance of coatings to 2 times in optimal conditions of electrolysis (iК = 8.5kA/m2, L = 0,119mH, C = 0,024F), which provides economic benefits to the 1500 lei per 1m2. We propose a new ICD (patent MD3573 C2 2008.04.30) and single-phase source (patent MD 3517 G2 2008.02.29).
