Abstract

The efficiency and functionality of [Tris(trimethylsiloxy)silyethyl]dimethylchlorosilane (Alkyl) hydrophobic silane coating were characterized. The effect of two types of surface pretreatment (i.e. plasma oxide and silicon oxide) on AISI type 304 stainless steel with a deposit of the hydrophobic silane was investigated. The chemical stability and functionality of the coating were determined by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Attenuated Fourier Transform Infrared (ATR-FTIR) respectively. The dry sliding wear behaviour was investigated using multifunctional vacuum tribometer. The result shows that plasma oxide surface pretreatment is better in chemical stability than the surface prepared using silicon oxide, however, silicon oxide has better wear property as compared to plasma oxide pretreated surface coating.
