SCALING-UP OF THE ALUMINIUM PLATING PROCESS FROM IONIC LIQUIDS

logo_SCAIL-UP
Summary
The main objective of this project is to develop a radically new manufacturing industrial green process based on the electrodeposition of aluminium from ionic liquids and post-processed the aluminium pure coating to obtain high-tech engineered metallic materials for the automotive and aeronautic sectors. This new process will replace conventional harmful techniques and will be more energy and material efficient. For achieving this goal, all barriers that difficult the industrialization of electrodeposition processes based on ionic liquid formulations will be overcome. SCAIL-UP project will seek for overcoming the barriers found in the upscaling of the process for electrodepositing Al with Ionic Liquids by the development of a radically new manufacturing industrial process for the automotive and aeronautic sectors. Thus the SCAIL-UP consortium will work on the design, development and validation of an industrial scale pilot plant that will be able to electroplate Al on current 3D polymeric (ABS) and metal (nickel alloys) industrial parts using Ionic Liquids.
