Summary

Magnesium alloys offer new ways in light weight engineering due to their low specific weight and their high strength to weight ratio. The use of magnesium alloys in many engineering applications is mainly limited by their unsatisfying surface properties and the poor corrosion resistance. Therefore an effective and appropriate coating technology has to be adapted to enable a successful implementation of magnesium alloys under tribological load and in corrosive environment. In most cases a one layer coating is not able to meet all demands. To match the different requirements multilayer coatings have to be used. The coating is combined of at least one hard coating which protects against wear and an additional coating ensuring functionality and improved dry lubrication ability. This can either be a polymer or a thin film.
