The tribological characteristics of nanocomposite Ti-Hf, Ti-Hf-N, and Ti-Hf-Si-N coatings deposited by the pulse HF-assisted vacuum arc method are studied. A substantial increase in the wear resistance and a decrease in the coefficient of friction of a protective Ti-Hf-Si-N coating compared to the steel substrate and protective Ti-Hf and (Ti, Hf)N coatings are found and explained.
