Abstract: The results of structural studies and mechanical, abrasion, and erosion tests of single-layer and multi-layer TiN, Ti–Cr–Al–N, and Cr–Al–Ti–N coatings deposited on a closed-field unbalanced magnetron sputtering (CFUBMS) system using the ion-plasma technique are reported. It is demonstrated that, despite their low level of hardness (17–18 GPa versus 40 GPa for TiN), Ti–Cr–Al–N and Cr–Al–Ti–N coatings are superior to single-layer titanium nitride coatings in terms of their abrasive wear resistance and erosion resistance due to their structural features.
