The prime objective of thin film formation on metallic substrate is to enhance the mechanical , structural ,tribological and electrical properties. Thin film deposition by using different nanomaterials is also an efficient and reliable way for enhancing the anti-corrosive property. As it is known that there are various factors which affect life and strength of mechanical parts. So thin film coatings can improve a material’s performance significantly in certain areas of corrosion control, and strength improvement for example hardness, conductivity, wear resistance etc. The various parts which are susceptible to corrosion and used in mechanical and automobile industries are firstly identified. It is found that the components like muffler, differential, engine chassis, exhaust system ,gears,etc.  which undergo corrosion due to  several  factors like climate change, oxidation, moisture content etc. To ameliorate anti corrosive property as well as other mechanical properties, it is necessary to obtain an optimum percentage of materials to be coated. The aim of the review is to highlight the advances in the coatings providing anticorrosive properties to various metallic substrates used specially for mechanical and automobile industries.

Keywords-substrate, nanomaterials, muffler etc.
