Cubic boron nitride (c-BN) films on tool substrates are tendency to delaminate. Therefore, many research groups have studied improvement of c-BN synthesis method and deposition processes due to many potential applications. In this paper, we show that the adhesion property of c-BN layer system can be improved by deposing multi c-BN layers. The multi c-BN layers were deposited by r.f (13.56 MHz) diode sputtering apparatus on cemented carbide tool substrates with a TiAlN adhesion layer. For industrial applications, we performed turning and milling experiments under dry and high speed cutting conditions. In this multi c-BN layer system, the lifetime of the tool is affected by the physical properties of the substrate and coated layers such as substrate grain size, thickness of the TiAlN and first c-BN layer and the total number of c-BN layers in this system. Mostly, fine grain size substrates showed longer lifetimes of over 4 times than raw one. In the turning performance, mono TiAlN layer systems were about two times lower lifetime than mono and multi c-BN layer system, moreover, we could be improved adhesion property for milling performance on tool substrates with binary multi c-BN layer systems under dry and high speed cutting conditions. The new application results of the multi c-BN layer system confirm that the high potential of c-BN coatings on cutting tools.

See more Boron products. Boron Bohr ModelBoron (atomic symbol: B, atomic number: 5) is a Block P, Group 13, Period 2 element with an atomic weight of 10.81. The number of electrons in each of boron's shells is 2, 3 and its electron configuration is [He] 2s2 2p1. The boron atom has a radius of 90 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 192 pm. Boron was discovered by Joseph Louis Gay-Lussac and Louis Jacques Thénard in 1808 and was first isolated by Humphry Davy later that year. Boron is classified as a metalloid is not found naturally on earth. Elemental BoronAlong with carbon and nitrogen, boron is one of the few elements in the periodic table known to form stable compounds featuring triple bonds. Boron has an energy band gap of 1.50 to 1.56 eV, which is higher than that of either silicon or germanium. The name Boron originates from a combination of carbon and the Arabic word buraqu meaning borax.
