Abstract
This study examines the influence of thin layer coatings of CrAlTiN and CrN/NbN, deposited via physical vapor, on the biocompatibility, mechanical, tribological, and corrosion properties of stainless steel 304. The microstructure and morphology of the thin CrAlTiN and CrN/NbN layers were characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), EDX, and X-ray diffraction. The pin on disc wear test was performed on bare and metal-nitride coated SST 304 under a 15 N load at 60 rpm and showed that the wear rates of the thin CrAlTiN and CrN/NbN film coatings were lower than the bare substrate wear ratio. The coefficients of friction (COFs) attained were 0.64, 0.5, and 0.55 for the bare substrate, CrN/NbN coating, and CrAlTiN coating, respectively. Nanoindentation tests were also performed on CrAlTiN-coated and CrN/NbN-coated SST 304. The nanohardnesses and Young’s moduli of the coated substrates were 28 GPa and 390 GPa (CrN/NbN-coated) and 33 GPa and 450 GPa (CrA1TiN-coated), respectively. For comparison, the nanohardness and Young’s modulus of the uncoated substrate were 4.8 GPa and 185 GPa, respectively. Corrosion tests were conducted, and the behaviors of the bare and metal nitride-deposited substrates were studied in CaCl2 for seven days. The corrosion Tafel test results showed that the metal-nitride coatings offer proper corrosion resistance and can protect the substrate against penetration of CaCl2 electrolyte. The CrN/NbN-coated substrates showed better corrosion resistance compared to the CrAlTiN-coated ones. In evaluating the biocompatibility of the CrAlTiN and CrN/NbN coatings, the human cell line MDA-MB-231 was found to attach and proliferate well on the surfaces of the two coatings.
