The diamond like carbon coatings (DLC) of 400 nm thickness was deposited by filtered cathodic vacuum arc system. The argon plasma etched and non‐etched tungsten carbide‐cobalt (WC‐Co) and stainless steel (SUS) were used as substrates. The chromium was deposited as an interlayer for diamond like carbon coatings on the etched and non‐etched WC‐Co and SUS substrates. The present research is to evaluate the effect of argon plasma etching of the substrates on microstructure, tribology and adhesion… 

Thickness dependent properties of diamond-like carbon coatings by filtered cathodic vacuum arc deposition

Abstract Diamond-like carbon (DLC) coatings of 300, 500 and 650 nm thickness were deposited on stainless steel substrates using a filtered cathodic vacuum arc hybrid with magnetron sputtering system.

Development of diamond-like-carbon coated abaca-reinforced polyester composites for hydrophobic and outdoor structural applications

This study presents the development of abaca fabric-reinforced polyester composites for outdoor applications having hydrophobic surface quality and enhanced mechanical properties. Diamond-like carbon

Lubrication of aluminium versus diamond-like carbon contacts with hydrophobin proteins

Hydrogenated diamond-like carbon coatings (a-C:H) and silicon-doped diamond-like carbon coatings (a-C:H(Si)) of 1 μm thickness were deposited on stainless steel substrates by the inductively coupled

Improvement of corrosion resistance and mechanical properties of chrome plating by diamond-like carbon coating with different silicon-based interlayers

In this study, the silicon-based interlayers for hydrogenated amorphous carbon (a-C:H) coating on a chromium-plated substrate are presented. The a-Si, a-Si:N, a-Si:H and a-SixCy:H interlayers with a

Controlled Distribution and Clustering of Silver in Ag-DLC Nanocomposite Coatings Using a Hybrid Plasma Approach.

A silver-incorporated diamond-like carbon coating prepared in a hybrid plasma reactor which allowed independent control of the metal content and the carbon film structure and morphology was reported and a mechanism for Ag-DLC growth by plasma was proposed.

Frictional Behavior of Polyurethane Modified by Carbon Coatings Synthesized in Dual-Frequency Plasma

ABSTRACT A method for changing the surface properties of polymeric materials is by plasma treatment and, in particular, the modification by carbon coatings synthesized using plasma techniques. This

Electrochemical Preparation of a Carbon/Cr-O-C Bilayer Film on Stainless Steel in Molten LiCl-KCl-K2CO3

A carbon film was electrochemically deposited on 304 stainless steel by reduction of carbonate ions in molten LiCl-KCl-K2CO3. A Cr-O-C interlayer was prepared by a joint process of thermal exposure
