Diamond-like carbon films - Determination of friction and wear characteristics of diamond-like carbon films by ball-on-disc method
|Publication Date:||15 March 2016|
|ICS Code (Surface treatment and coating in general):||25.220.01|
This International Standard specifies a procedure for and provides guidance on the determination of the coefficient of friction and the specific wear rate of diamond-like carbon (DLC) films. The method specifies that the materials are tested under dry conditions in pairs in a ball-on-disc configuration.
The results of the tests are not applicable when DLC-coated parts operate in a lubricated environment.
