  1. 1. Triboactive Component Coatings : Tribological Testing and Microanalysis of Low-Friction Tribofilms

    Författare :Fredrik Gustavsson; Staffan Jacobson; Bojan Podgornik; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; tribofilms; low-friction coatings; tungsten disulfide; TEM; Materialvetenskap; Materials Science;

    Sammanfattning : Coatings are often used on critical components in machines and engines to reduce wear and to provide low friction in order to reduce energy losses and the environmental impact.A triboactive coating not only provides this desired performance, it also actively maintains the low friction by a structural or chemical change in a very thin top layer of these already micrometer thin coatings.

  2. 2. Formation and Function of Low-Friction Tribofilms

    Författare :Harald Skiöld Nyberg; Staffan Jacobson; Allan Matthews; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; tribology; tribofilm; PVD; coating; low-friction; tungsten disulphide; transition metal dichalcogenide; tribochemistry; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot tribomaterial; Engineering Science with specialization in Tribo Materials;

    Sammanfattning : The use of low-friction coatings on machine elements is steadily increasing, and they are expected to play an important role in the reduction of fuel consumption of future motorized vehicles. Many low-friction coatings function by transformation of the outermost coating layer into tribofilms, which then cover the coating surface and its counter surface. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Triboactive Low-Friction Coatings Based on Sulfides and Carbides

    Författare :Jill Sundberg; Ulf Jansson; Jochen M. Schneider; Uppsala universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : For sustainable development, it is highly important to limit the loss of energy and materials in machines used for transportation, manufacturing, and other purposes. Large improvements can be achieved by reducing friction and wear in machine elements, for example by the application of coatings. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Wear resistant low friction coatings for machine elements

    Författare :Olle Wänstrand; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Materials science; Materialvetenskap; Materials science; Teknisk materialvetenskap; materialvetenskap; Materials Science;

    Sammanfattning : By the introduction of machine elements made of light metals, e.g. Al or Mg alloys, which are coated with a material providing high wear resistance and low friction coefficient, both economical and environmental benefits can be gained. A high resistance against wear results in increased lifetime and lower costs for spare parts and maintenance. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Low-friction and wear-resistant carbon nitride coatings for bearing components grown by magnetron sputtering

    Författare :Konstantinos Bakoglidis; Grzegorz Greczynski; Lars Hultman; Susann Schmidt; Witold Gulbinski; Linköpings universitet; []
