Al based PVD coatings as cadmium replacement

AUTHOR/S: R. Valle

ABSTRACT

The Al based coatings developed by CSM are deposited by Cathodic Arc PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition), which allows to obtain dense Al based coatings. Several variants of the coatings were developed aiming at increasing both the corrosion and the tribological performances of the steel coated components.
