Al-Sn nanostructured coatings on aluminum surfaces using electrospark alloying and their wear behavior
At electrspark alloying (ESA) of aluminum surfaces using Al-Sn tool-electrode (TE), nanostructuring of manufactured surfaces take place owing to the formation of SnO2 nanofibers. Examining the tribological properties of these surfaces in a friction couple with a counterbody made of hardened steel showed that the wear of counterbody during the friction in the oil and at dry friction exceeds by an order of magnitude and above it the wear of such surfaces.
