Recent trends in Sputter coating
B Sathvik,  G Bharadwaj
Steel is an alloy of iron, carbon and other elements. Due to its high tensile strength and low cost, these are used as materials for various engineering components like tools, ships, automobiles, machines, appliances, and weaponry. There is always a high risk in the change of properties (mechanical, tribological, microstructural) when a low alloyed steel component encounters a high humidity pressure or even in an aqueous medium. So, in order to improve the surface properties hardness, wear and corrosion resistance of the steel materials various surface coating techniques are used. The sputter coating method is one of the prominent surface coating technique to improve the surface properties of the material. Present review focused on the various process parameters in sputter coating technique which are influencing the surface properties of the various types of steels.
In this paper, we have presented the variation of properties with different coatings for both substrate steel and alloy steel like stainless steel and high-speed steel.
Keywords- Coating, Microstructural.
