摘要：The combination of WS2 films and surface textures were investigated for improving the friction and wear properties of sol-gel ZrO2 coatings. Grid-like grooves with different groove pitch were fabricated by laser surface texturing technology. All the textured coatings showed improved hydrophilicity (the contact angle of ZrO2 coatings decreased by similar to 3.5-22.8% after texturing). WS2 films were deposited on the ZrO2 coatings by electrohydrodynamic atomization technology. The dry sliding friction and wear properties of samples with surface textures or/and WS2 films additive were evaluated. Both the coefficient of friction of ZrO2 coatings and steel ball wear rate were affected by laser surface texturing and WS2 films additive. The textured samples with the texture coverage of 0.679 showed the lowest friction coefficient and lowest steel ball wear rate, decreasing by similar to 16% and similar to 70%, respectively, when comparing with those of the untextured samples. The further improved anti friction and antiwear properties were obtained by the synergistic combination of surface textures and deposited WS2 films. Additionally, laser surface micro-texturing could contribute to prolong the WS2 films wear life and magnify its lubricating effect.
