  • Publication number: 20190217334
    Abstract: The invention provides a coating film having excellent adhesion, even without a chemical conversion film treatment being carried out as an undercoat treatment, and a metal automotive part having the coating film. A powder is deposited by powder-coating onto the surface of a metal automotive part that has been quenched after forging, and tempering of the metal automotive part and bake-hardening of the deposited powder are carried out simultaneously, thereby forming a skin film on the surface of the metal automotive part. The surface of the metal automotive part before the powder is powder-coated thereon is a work-hardened basis material surface that has been not subjected to a chemical conversion filming treatment.

  • Publication number: 20190150292
    Abstract: A circuit forming method where a metal ink is ejected to a planned formation position of a first wiring at an upper face of a base material. Then, the metal ink is baked, and first wiring is formed. Further, a planned connection section of the first wiring and a second wiring is unbaked. The metal-ink is ejected over an upper face of the unbaked metal ink and a planned formation position of the second wiring at the upper face of the base material. Since the wettability of the upper face of the unbaked metal ink and the wettability of the upper face of the base material are equal to each other, the ejected metal ink ejected and the unbaked metal ink are not separated from each other, so that it is possible to properly connect the first wiring and the second wiring to each other.
