Glossary of surface technology


Wear is the ageing of components through use (in contrast to ageing through storage and environmental influences). Wear is caused in particular by material fatigue, kinking, bending, scratching and abrasion. By means of plasma treatment, many factors can be effectively influenced which cause surface wear:

  • Increase of the abrasion and scratch resistance by DLC coats
  • Reduction of abrasion and friction by PTFE coats or fluorination
  • Improvement of lubrication by epilamisation
