Surface Technology
Introduction:

Ms Zhou Yujie has been working on electrochemical processes for industrial applications. Her research and development work focuses on surface treatments and coatings for decoration, anti-corrosion, anti-wear, plastic metallization and coatings for high precision manufacturing. Before joining SIMTech in 2011, she had worked at a Japanese company in Singapore as a research chemist/ assistant technical manager in precious metal plating formulation and process for over 10 years. She also worked in China for 5 years, responsible for material quality testing.

Research Interest:

Application of chemical and electrochemical processes to physically and/or chemically modify materials surface, such as metals, plastics and composites, as well as ceramics, to meet industrial requirements for aesthetics anti-corrosion and anti-wear. Current R&D work includes development on electrolytic and electroless composite coatings, plastic metallization, plating chemistry formulation for industrial applications.
