Description A thin film deposited on the surface of a tool can substantially influence its durability and performance. The most frequently used coatings in industry are ceramic coatings with great hardness and stiffness. However, these coatings are quite brittle, which can cause the formation and spreading of cracks. To prevent the formation of cracks, the material of the film should exhibit ductile behaviour. The combination of high hardness and moderate ductility has been discovered in the nanolaminate Mo2BC. Mid frequency pulsed-DC magnetron sputtering was used to deposit thin Mo2BC films. This method was chosen, because it is relatively simple and therefore industry-friendly.
