Magnetic Field on Properties of Solid Lubricants Coating on High-Speed Steel Surface
The main factors that affect properties of solid lubricant coating on high-speed steel surface are the surface roughness and the weight of phosphate coating. The effect of magnetic field on high speed steel phosphate process is significant. It promotes the film and the different appearance and composition of the film. Because the ferric phosphate and dihydric phosphate in phosphate solution may be ordered arrangement by additional magnetic field, they can be deposited on metal surfaces quickly. That is to say that a certain intensity of the magnetic field can reduce the entropy of the phosphate processing system and speed up the formation of phosphate film. During phosphate treatment, the friction performance of high-speed steel coated with solid lubricant coating was significantly improved.
