Abstract

Residual compressive stresses can be induced into a PVD film up to a certain depth from the coating surface via micro-blasting. Depending on the micro-blasting conditions, the deformed film depth varies, thus affecting the coatings performance in different applications. A method has been already introduced for determining mechanical strength properties gradation in coatings after micro-blasting.
