Two Ti(C,N) coatings were tested by means of micro abrasion and scratch testing. The coatings differed in grain size, orientation (<111> and <111>, <311> and <211> respectively) and hardness (36 GPa and 23 GPa respectively). The <111> oriented coating had a 20% higher wear resistance compared to the reference coating when abraded with 1 μm diamonds. When abraded with 6 μm diamonds the abrasion resistance of the reference coating was superior compared to the <111> oriented coating by 36%. Furthermore, it was found that the <111> oriented coating had 35% better adhesion compared to the reference. The improved mechanical properties of the <111> oriented coating was attributed to a high degree of orientation and the higher hardness.
