    SiO coatings on aluminum substrates were prepared using hard-facing performed at ambient conditions. Well-integrated SiO/aluminum interfaces are created via electrodiffusion that takes place during processing. Analysis of surfaces with scanning electron microscopy/EDS and nanoindentation confirm atomic stoichiometries and hardness values consistent with SiO. Hard-facing performed at ambient conditions is a way to coat aluminum with SiO that otherwise would decompose at elevated temperatures typically created using conventional hard-facing.
