Experimental methods of assessment of PVD coatings properties
Keywords:PVD, coating, experimental methods, properties
AbstractThe paper investigates the properties of thin coatings deposited by Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD) technology. This is a modern technology of depositing thin coatings onto the surface of machine parts. Technological procedures of deposition of thin coatings undergo constant improvement. At the same time, new types of coatings are developed. These developments necessitate evaluation of structure, composition and properties of the coatings. The basic methods of determination of properties of thin coatings include determination of their thickness and hardness, structure and chemical analysis, adhesioncohesion and tribological properties.
