The article "Hard Coatings on Contaminated Surfaces - A Case Study" appeared in the January/February 1997 issue of Gear Technology.

Summary
Physical Vapor Deposited (PVD) coatings such as TiN (Titanium nitride) have been a boon for cutting tool manufacturers. They reduce wear and, therefore, extend tool life, which in turn reduces production costs. But PVD coatings are expensive, and when they fail, they cost both time and money, and they causes of the failure are not always readily apparent.
