This paper aims to fabricate wear resistant composite coatings on light metal substrates which also exhibit low friction coefficients. It demonstrates that combined ceramic polymer coating systems are a powerful concept for industrial applications where high wear resistance, creep resistance and compressive strength as well as low friction coefficients are required. The results show that, under the specific experimental conditions used, the titanium dioxide layer in connection with the applied lubricant lacquer showed better performance than the mixed aluminum oxide/titanium dioxide layers. Paper includes a German-language abstract.
