Abstract: Ti-B-N coatings consist of a mixture of single and binary phases depending on the relative concentration of their constituents. Such multiphase coatings can also be realised by depositing these phases in multilayers. We have investigated the tribological behaviour of both types of coatings consisting of equal phases and composition. Homogeneous coatings have been prepared by reactive sputtering from a TiB2 target and multilayer coatings by sequential sputtering from Ti, BN and TiB2 targets. A significant difference in hardness, elasticity, friction coefficient and wear behaviour has been observed for both types of coatings highlighting the importance of the structural arrangement of the phases.
