In this study, composite metastable (Ti0.49Al0.49Y0.02)N, (Ti0.44Al0.44Cr0.1Y0.02)N and (Ti0.34Al0.34Cr0.3Y0.02)N coatings were respectively deposited on a wrought martensite steel 1Cr11Ni2W2MoV for aero-engine compressor blades by arc ion plating technique with a pulse substrate bias. All the coatings have B1NaCl phase structure with a (220) preferred orientation and dense structures. The introduction of chromium into the coatings gave rise to a minute shrinkage of crystal lattice and a decrease of crystal size. Annealed at 800°C, Oxidation-resistance of the coatings improved with increased Cr content. But heat-treated at 900°C, the incorporation of Cr gave rise to obvious decrease of oxidation-resistance.
