I received the following e-mail from you asking for more information regarding 
my question. The specifications are at the end of this message.

Re: How can I apply a washcoat to a nickel monolith and what type of washocoat?

Greetings -

Please provide further specifics. As it stands it would be
difficult for us to find an answer to your question.

Please resubmit questions online via

A couple of MadSci experts have deferred on your question and it may be
that what is missing is a reference to the application involved. In what
context is your monolith to be used? Is a scientific experiment, an art
display, or other?

Thanks for your question.

the monolith have a cell size opening of 500 micrometer, the reason for the
washcoat is that I need the cell wall to have a rough surface and at the same
time want to keep the cell opening between 450-500 micrometers, it needs to
withstand high temperatures(1000 C).The washcoat considered is alumina(If know 
of a place that can perform the washcoat please send how to contact them,baton 
rouge area preferred). The monolith will be used in the design(as my senior 
project) of a catalytic converter.
