Abstract

The tribological performance of some 'Second Generation' ceramic coatings have been evaluated by pin on disc testing, both against themselves and against uncoated steel and copper counterfaces. These tests revealed that three categories of friction and wear behaviour could be produced. i) Low friction and low pin and disc wear, ii) Intermediate friction and low pin and disc wear, iii) High friction and high disc wear. These tests confirm that the modern ionisation assisted PVD techniques for ceramics will allow coatings technologists to 'surface engineer' rubbing machine parts, and tools, to achieve virtually any desired operating property.
