Abstract

At the present time, TiN coating is widely used to improve wear- and corrosion-resistance of working tools and mechanical components on an industrial scale. Yet application of another ceramic coating, CrN, is still limited in situations mated with Ti-, Cu- and Al-base alloys. Some evidence shows CrN to possess properties superior to TiN. A series of experiments were conducted, through a SRV wear test machine, to assess if CrN had the potential to substitute for TiN as mated with ferrous metal. Studies of characterizations and properties of both ceramic films are also presented in this report. The experimental results indicated that CrN of optimum thickness worked much better than TiN under identical conditions. Thus, CrN is expected to be used as a good substitute for TiN.
