What is it about?

TiN coatings produced by physical vapor deposition (PVD) have a limited corrosion resistance. The objective of the work is to improve the corrosion resistance by an intermediateTi layer.

Why is it important?

The deposition of Ti interlayer improve not only corrosion resistance but also adherence,

This would allow the use of thin fi lms of TiN, maintaining the quality of the protection without a rise in costs associated with greater thicknesses.
