Production, Structure, Properties


Multicomponent hard coatings based on nitrides of Si-doped transition metals have been produced by vacuum-arc deposition with the use of a RF generator and separation of an ion-plasma flux. Physico-mechanical and tribotechnical characteristics of coatings have been studied. The possibility of their use as efficient protective coatings has been shown.
