Tribobond™ 51/52/54 – Wear resistance for highly corrosive environments
Modern machinery, with its intricate demands for precision and reliability amid cost pressures, faces challenges. Coatings that provide both corrosion and wear protection are scarce. Read on for insights into innovative solutions addressing this critical gap.
Coatings for challenging wear applications
Modern machinery is increasingly complex, placing high demands on precision and reliability. At the same time, cost pressures are very high. This creates massive challenges for machine components. To reach these demands, there is an important role for coatings that can provide corrosion protection, wear protection or friction reduction. However, coatings that combine these properties are rare. They usually shine in only one area: either wear or corrosion.
Recognizing that problem, Ionbond engineers went to the drawing board with the idea to create specialty coatings that combine corrosion resistance and suitability for challenging wear applications. This resulted in the addition of the Ionbond Tribobond™ 51, 52 and 54 coatings to Ionbond’s portfolio.
These coatings are produced using pure plasma-assisted chemical vapor deposition (PACVD) without adding a metallic underlayer made by physical vapor deposition (PVD). In corrosion-sensitive applications, a PVD underlayer could be detrimental. However, simply skipping an underlayer can lead to poor adhesion of amorphous carbon or silicon films, which are the main functional layers of the new Tribobond™ coatings. For this reason, a special technique was developed to promote adequate adhesion of these films without metallic underlayers.
