The anticorrosive characteristics of nanostructured TiN/(Ti,Al)N multilayers (bilayer periods ranging from 4 to 20 nm) prepared by cathodic arc deposition method have been investigated. Additional coatings properties such as elemental composition, phase composition, texture, microhardness, bilayer period, thickness, adhesion and corrosion resistance were determined by using EDX, XPS and XRD techniques, Vickers microhardness measurements, scratch and electrochemical tests.
