Feasibility of TiBN PVD Coating for Mill Rolls - Laboratory Testing of Anti-adhesive and Fatigue Resistance Properties

Abstract : The ceramic coatings deposited by Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD) are known for their high hardness. They offer a wide variety of friction coefficients. They have been used for a number of years for the coating of cutting tools; they have shown high efficiency in this field. Considering this, some of these coatings might prove efficient in the field of metal rolling. Yet to the best of the authors' knowledge, they have never been used industrially for rolling mill rolls. TiBN is one of the PVD coatings with the highest hardness. It is also known for its anti-adhesive property. In this study, the interest of TiBN in cold rolling is analyzed. In this application, the potential productivity is determined by the maximum pair (reduction, speed) above which seizure and transfer degrade tribological properties. The fatigue resistance is also studied and therefore, the potential influence of the coating on the roll life under conditions similar to those of rolling. Two well adapted tribological tests have been used for these two purposes: a plate-on-ring test, and a twin-disk Amsler test. The results of this study show a high potential of TiBN as coating for rolling mill rolls: good anti-adhesive property, very high resistance to wear and fatigue. It shows better performance than hard chromium, which is now widely used in this application
