Paper Abstract

Ni-P-Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) composite coatings as well as Ni-P-SiC and Ni-P coatings were prepared by electroless plating. The characteristics of the coatings were assessed by scanning electron microscopy and microhardness test. The friction and wear performance of the produced composite coatings were investigated at room temperature on a ball-on-disc type tribometer under non-lubricated conditions. The results show that the Ni-P-CNTs composite coatings exhibited lowed friction coefficient and better anti-wear performance compared to Ni-P-SiC and Ni-P coatings due to improved mechanical properties, self-lubrication and unique microstructure of the Ni-P-CNTs composite coatings. The effect of CNTs on the friction and wear resistance was discussed in detail.
