Hard chrome plating is widely used in aeronautic industries. However European regulations oblige for substitution due to health and environment impact. In this way, hard chrome as a reference and different alternative coatings are tested under various wear conditions: sliding, fretting and cumulated tri-axial solicitations with various counterpart materials under greased and dry contact at different temperatures. Static and dynamic coefficient of friction are determined and compared. Advantages and drawback are then identified and preferred use is described for each alternative coating tested.
