Gradient

CT=1.84m

CT=1.92m

CT=2.52m

CT=2.5m
The gradient structure also starts with adhesion layer, with components like TiN and CrN, generating a tough core for the coating. The ratio of hard components (e.g. cubic AlN) will be continuously increased obtaining the highest hardness on the top of the coating.

The monoblock structure without adhesion layer can be produced by the fastest, most economical process. All targets are the same and run during the whole deposition process.

24

The multilayer structure has higher toughness at lower hardness than a comparable monoblock coating. The "sandwich" structure absorbs the cracks by the sublayers. Therefore the multilayer is usually preferred for high dynamical load, e.g. for Especially at high aluminum content the monoblock roughing. coating should be started with adhesion layer (e.g. TiN or CrN).

Nanocomposite

TripleCoating3
Nanocomposite top layer Monoblock or gradient core layer

Adhesion layer 5 nm
Nanolayer is the conventional structure for the so called Nanocoatings. It is a finer version of multilayers with a period of < 20 nm. Its hardness depends on the period. The period depends on the rotation speed of the substrates. Therefore the coating hardness can be different on substrates with different sizes deposited in a mixed batch. By depositing different kinds of materials, the components (like Ti, Cr, Al, and Si) are not mixed, and 2 phases are created. The nanocrystalline TiAlNor AlCrN-grains become embedded in an amorphous Si3N4-Matrix. This nanocomposite structure significantly improves physical characteristics, they are not depending on the batch load.

CT=2.72m
TripleCoatings are deposited with 3 sections freely programmed in one batch: The adhesion layer is generated with TiN or CrN. The core is deposited with the nowadays most used AlTiN. The nanocomposite (e.g. AlTiN/SiN) generates the wear resistant skin with extrem high warm hardness.

25

Comparison of Coating Structures


By deposition very different kinds of materials, the components (like Ti, Cr, Al in the first group, and Si in the other) are not mixed completely, and 2 phases are created. The nanocrystalline TiAlN- or AlCrN-grains become embedded in the amorphous Si3N4-matrix and a nanocomposite structure is created. Silicon increases the thoughness and decreases the internal residual stress of the coating. The inreasing of the hardness is generated by the structure only, the SiN matrix enwraps the hard grains and avoids growing of their size.

The beach comparison illustrates the hardness increase made possible by using a nanocomposite structure. Usually, the foot sinks into dry sand. In wet sand, the foot does not sink in or not as far, because the space between sand-corns is filled with water. The surface has a higher resistance, so it is harder.
