Machine manufacturers face the challenge mat com¬ponents in contact with aggressive media must fulfill extreme requirements in terms of corrosion and wear resistance. In many cases, filled polymer-based coat¬ings provide sufficient protection. In the course of this work, such coatings were produced and tribolo-gically tested with respect to their tribological perfor¬mance from model to component-like levels. To ob¬tain information on the occurring tribological influen¬ces with regard to used resin or particle size, rotational ball-on-disk tests were carried out. Based on these findings, the most promising coating was selected and tested using application-oriented test metiiods. The obtained results showed a generally good wear resistance of the coatings against metallic counter-parts in lubricated states. In addition, the further de¬velopment of the model tests, towards application-oriented tests, also provided the basis for the transfer-ability of the results.
