Abstract

Microchemical, microstructural, mechanical and tribe-logical characteristics of alternate TiN/ZrN multilayer coatings were investigated by energy-dispersive X-ray (EDX) spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction (XRD), microhardness and thickness measurements, adhesion and wear resistance tests. The coatings, with various bilayer periods and thicknesses of the individual layers, were deposited on Si and steel substrates by the cathodic arc technique. A comparison with TiN and ZrN monolayer properties was carried out.
