Summary

This paper discusses the conditions for which the authors were able to obtain smooth, continuous, crack-free silica coatings on Bismaleimide (BMI) polymeric substrates using a spin-on silica solution. In addition, the nature of the point-contact loading damage induced by Vickers indentation is discussed, including the crack damage zone dimensions as a function of the indentation load. Blunt contact load damage also was induced in the coating via a limited number of Hertzian indentations.
