This paper deals with possibilities of production of new nanocomposite coatings in polymer matrix on aluminium alloys, namely the formation of a composite coating in a polymer matrix on an aluminium alloy. It is a PMMA coating (polymethylmethacrylate) with the addition of TiO2 particles. Working with these particles requires not only safety but also a suitable preparation process to obtain particles of suitable size, their subsequent homogeneous distribution in the coating (particles of this size are influenced by electro statically attractive forces and have a strong tendency to aggravate).The aim is to determine if the coatings will affect the surface‘s condition and its properties. The focus of the work is on selecting of the appropriate preparation of sample technology, examining the particle distribution in the coating and the effect of the coating on the coefficient of shear friction. Consequently, what can be achieved is the coefficient of shear friction of the surface of the coated part compared to the uncoated surface (at different particle concentrations in the spin) and the distribution of TiO2 particles on the surface of the sample.
Key words: Nanocomposite coating / Polymer / Coefficient of friction / Surface analysis
