Thin Film Metallic Glasses for Tribological Applications

Project description

English EN

Novel metal coatings to protect tools and dies from corrosion and wear

Tribological coatings protect tooling, dies and moulds from wear and friction. Thanks to their amorphous structure, thin-film metallic glasses have high strength and large elastic limits, suitable for a wide range of tribological applications. The absence of defects renders them highly resistant to corrosion and wear. Spurred by their potential, the EU-funded TriboMetGlass project will experiment with depositing glass amorphous coatings onto commercial substrates using a magnetron sputtering process. Their tungsten-based coating composition would be stable in high temperatures while zirconium and barium enhance the glass forming ability. Numerous tests will be conducted before these coatings move from the laboratory to the industry.
