Development of a hard nanostructured coating layer system H-Nanocoat 2

This coating system H-Nanocoat 2 is a coating layer which has high potential for abrasive wear resistance. The coating layer exists of a chromium adhesion layer, a W-C:H load carrying layer and a diamond-like carbon top layer. Good results can be expected in applications, where sliding wear is the major wear mechanism.. This is due to the hardness, as well as to the low cof. Promising wear results have been observed on initial tests on shims. Since in most applications sliding is one of the major wear mechanisms, this coating is expected to be useable in a wide range of applications as well. For the base layer potential coating modifcations have been developed that are expected to give good results in abrasicve wear by smoothening the surface roughness. For tuning the hardnesses of the different layers, the possibility exists to integrate Si as a doping element in the diamond-like carbon layer as well.
