In recent years, there is a growing interest in the application of Nano-composite coating on the cutting tools to increase the wear resistance and high thermal stability. To reduce the friction and enhance the wear resistance, the hard Nano composites YttriaStabilized Zirconia (YSZ), Silicon carbide (SiC) and Aluminum oxide (Al2O3) show high performance capabilities. This article attributes a specific study of the application of YSZ, SiC and Al2O3 hard nanocomposite coatings which have been deposited on a carbide tool by electrostatic spray coating (ESC) technique. The coatings have been tested for wear and friction behavior by using a pin-on-disc tribological tester using a Ti-6Al-4V disc and hard nanocomposite coated carbide tool (pin) at ambient atmosphere. The electrostatic Nano-composite coated tools performed better and the outcome is expected to be useful in various industrial applications.
