Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The use of coatings is becoming increasingly widespread. Initially used to increase the service life of cutting tools, they are now used in practically all areas of science and technology. They are successfully employed in vehicle components, medical technology and in general industry. Progress in the field of coating and their application technology not only increases the service life of components but also reduces the operating costs of technical facilities. Thin anti-wear coatings make it possible to produce machine and equipment parts with increasingly better properties and a low friction coefficient, which translates directly into operational safety. Therefore, the aim of this Special Issue is to present current research results on the practical applications of coatings in industry and means of transport.

In particular, the topic of interest includes but is not limited to:

  • Coatings in means of road, rail, air and sea transport;
  • Coatings in cosmonautics;
  • Coatings in medical engineering;
  • Coatings in food processing and packaging;
  • Coatings in the energy and fuel industry;

Increase in Oxidation Resistance of MAR M-509 via LA-CVD Aluminizing

Due to their excellent mechanical properties, Co-based alloys are one of the main candidates to replace Ni-based alloys in high temperature application. Knowledge about oxidation resistance of Co-based alloy MAR M-509 and the extent of its aluminizing on its oxidation resistance is limited. Therefore, in the present study, an aluminide layer was manufactured by low activity chemical vapor deposition (LA-CVD) on MAR M-509. Aluminized and uncoated alloys were investigated in terms of oxidation kinetics and oxidation resistance during isothermal and cyclic oxidation at 1000 and 1100 °C. Material in the as-cast and after exposure was analyzed using scanning electron microscopy (SEM), thermogravimetry (TG) and glow-discharge optical emission spectrometry (GD-OES). Obtained results allowed for elucidating of degradation mechanism including nitridation process of carbides for MAR M-509. It was found that aluminizing of MAR M-509 significantly decreases its oxidation kinetics by the factor of 2.5 and 1.5 at 1000 and 1100 °C respectively. Moreover, the suppression of identified degradation mechanism in case of aluminized alloy was found until occurrence of breakaway oxidation of the aluminide layer. It was also proposed that further increase in oxidation resistance can be successively achieved by an increase in aluminide layer thickness. Full article

In this article, sample damage and wear of forced-in joints is presented, and their reliability evaluated. Compared were shafts without additional finish treatment, rolled shafts and those with a TiSiN coating. Tribological samples under investigation operated in rotational bending conditions. Recorded was the number of fatigue cycles at which damage might occur. Reliability indicators were plotted, which demonstrated that coated shafts are distinguished by the highest reliability and low damage intensity. Macroscopic observations of shaft surfaces demonstrated the traces of adhesive wear and, in the case of shafts without additional treatment and in the case of rolled shafts, fretting wear traces in the form of a ring comprising the entire shaft circumference. Microscopic observations showed numerous build-ups on the surface, microcracks, and the occurrence of wear products in the gap between the shaft and sleeve. The highest fatigue strength was demonstrated by shafts with a TiSiN coating. The shaft section change area was the place where fatigue wear occurred. Full article

The aim of this paper is to find an effective way to reduce the friction and wear of steel. CrCN coating was deposited on AISI 304 stainless steel by magnetron sputtering technology, and the friction and wear properties of the coating under glycerol lubrication were studied. The hardness of CrCN coatings on stainless steel surface can reach to 17.87 GPa when the carbon target deposition current is 2A. The CrCN coating presents low friction coefficient (COF) under the lubrication of glycerol, a highly efficient green lubricant. When the load is 0.5 N, the lowest friction coefficient is only 0.01. XPS analysis on the wear track suggested that glycerol decomposed during sliding and a fluid lubricating layer was formed, which provides ultralow friction. The paper shows that the glycerol could be used as an efficient lubricant for the CrCN coating. Full article
