Annotation of this paper is available
A new composite metallic coating has been developed which shows considerable promise as a gasoline engine cylinder liner. This substance, consisting of electroplated dispersion of microscopic-size hard particles, offers a very wear-resistant material which combines the hardness of carbides and the economy of electroplating practices.
