This knowledge-based design of polymers with high affinity for crystalline interfaces holds great promise for many areas of science and technology in which crystallization plays a decisive role.
The increase of hardness and decrease in the wear rate on the coating were attributed to the amorphous crystalline interfaces on boron carbide particles and the boron and tungsten carbides in the amorphous matrix.
The higher energy crystalline interfaces reduce the free energy barrier for nucleation increasing the probability of forming a stable nuclei, and more importantly increase the number of potential nucleation sites.
