Mechanical properties of galvanic metaloxide Fe-Co-MoOx coating
Elemental composition and morphology of coatings were determined by energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy. Surface roughness was determined as the arithmetic mean of Ra in accordance with international standards ISO 4287/1 according to the results of research by atomic force microscopy. Thermal stability was tested by heating the samples from 25 to 800 degrees in air. The microhardness of the coatings and the substrate material (mild steel) was determined by the Vickers method on a PMT-3 hardness tester at loads P = 0.02‒0.2 kg and a holding time of 10 s.
