Comparative Study of Friction and Wear Behavior of Diamond-Like Carbon Coating under Various Lubricants
The friction and wear properties of AISI 52100 steel and DLC coatings were evaluated while being lubricated with silicone oil, PAO and PAG lubricants by using a reciprocating ball-on-disk sliding UMT tester. The morphologies of original surface and worn surfaces for the DLC and Ti doped DLC coatings were observed by using a scanning electron microscope. The results show that the DLC coatings have better tribological properties than AISI 52100 steel under silicone oil, PAO and PAG lubrication conditions. In addition, the DLC coatings have much better wear resistance than the AISI 52100 steel.
