A tale of two nitrides: Corrosion and damage protection coatings for tool steels

By Eileen De Guire / October 8, 2012

Schematic illustrations of micro-sized pores (structural defects) in (a) CrN- and (b) TiSiN-coated steels immersed in a corrosive solution. Micro-sized particles also exist in both types of coatings, in this case, sitting in the middle of pore regions. The oxide layer dominant on the surface of CrN coating shows a greater integrity than that of…
