Fall 2000


A ceramer precursor coating composition capable of being formed into ceramer coatings having high tensile modulus and tensile strength while retaining a relatively low strain-at-break are provided. The ceramer precursor coating composition includes unsaturated oil stock and sol-gel precursor. The sol-gel precursor includes a mixture of at least two sol-gel precursor species which are based on different metal atoms. An article having at least one surface coated with a ceramer coating formed from the inorganic/organic coating composition is also provided.
