Abstract

Unbalanced magnetron sputtered multilayer coatings TiAlN/VN and TiAlCrYN grown on pulse plasma nitriding pre-treated low alloy steel P20 have been characterised by using X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscope (SEM), micro-indentation, scratch and pin-on-dise wear tests. A 160-mu m-thick nitrided case was formed on the steel surface containing a pure Fe3N and Fe4N compound layer and showing hardness up to 8.5 GPa, which led to improved load bearing ability and adhesion behaviour of the coating-substrate system. The coatings deposited on non-nitrided P20 showed poor adhesion and severe cracking and spalling wear. In contrast, the TiAlN/VN and TiAlCrYN deposited on nitrided substrates showed only mild polishing and oxidation wear mechanisms and extremely low wear coefficients in the scales of 10(-17) and 10(-16) m(3) N-1 m(-1), respectively. In drilling solution treated 304 austenite stainless steel, the TiAlN/VN-coated drills showed a lifetime 50% longer than TiAlN-coated drills. Plasma nitriding pre-treatment led to further increases of lifetime by 33%. (c) 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
