The diamond coating of tungsten carbide (WC)-cobalt (Co) hard metals has been the focus of various research activities mainly due to growing interest in diamond-coated tools for industrial machining of different materials. In this work, multilayered diamond coatings have been grown on pretreated tungsten carbide-cobalt substrates by hot-filament chemical vapor deposition. Two types of multilayer coatings have been prepared: (a) three-layer (alternating nanocrystalline diamond and microcrystalline diamond films) and (b) five-layer (alternating ultrananocrystalline and microcrystalline diamond films). The morphology, roughness, structure, thickness, adhesion of these coatings have been investigated using atomic force microscopy, field emission gun scanning electron microscopy, energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, nanoindentantion and Rockwell C indentation tests at 600 N load. Raman spectra of the two types of samples exhibited sharp characteristic bands of nanocrystalline diamond and a centered peak at 1340 cm(-1). The displacement of this peak in relation to the natural diamond peak (1332 cm(-1))can be attributed to graphitic inclusions in diamond grain boundaries and the thermal coefficient mismatch of the multilayer coating-substrate system. Roughness surface measurements showed very smooth surfaces for both samples. Although the substrate has a high binder content, the results show that well-adhered chemical vapor deposition diamond multilayer coatings were produced. (AU)
