Metallography Lab. 0 Effects of target current on the mechanical properties of Cr-C coatings by using the Unbalanced Magnetron Sputtering Professor ： Dr. Yu-Sen Yang Speaker ： Jia-Hau Lin Date ： 2011.05.20
Metallography Lab. 2 Introduction 1.The chromium carbide (Cr-C) films have excellent properties including chemical stability, oxidation resistance, low coefficient of friction and wear resistance. 2. The excellent anti-wear performance of Cr-C films can be attributed to the large content of carbide. 3. Cr-C coatings have been known to protected tools which may be damaged by high thermal load (high cutting speed).

Metallography Lab. 14 Conclusions The experimental results show the carbon content in Cr-C films increase with decreasing target current when target current decrease from 6A to 1A,the carbon content increase from31.1 at.% to at 94.2 at.%. The friction coefficient of films decrease from 0.66 to 0.22 and the wear rate is reduced from 423 ‧ 10 -6 (mm 3 ‧ N -1 ‧ m -1 ) to 6 ‧ 10 -6 (mm 3 ‧ N -1 ‧ m -1 ) when the current reduced from 6A to 1A. The lowest wear rate is 6 ‧ 10 -6 (mm 3 ‧ N -1 ‧ m -1 ) at traget current 1A The lowest friction coefficient is 0.22 at traget current 2A The excellent anti-wear performance of Cr-C films can be attributed to the large content of carbide.
Metallography Lab. 15 The reasons for a low coefficient of friction is the formation of solid solution carbon in the diamond- like carbon film in the crystal structure, which could effectively reduce wear and promote the wear resistance characteristics.
