The outstanding tribological properties of ta-C and partially also of hard a-C films (see Vol. II, Part VII) suggest their broad application as wear protecting and friction reducing coatings. The realization of the corresponding mass production depends on the basic problem of any thin film technology, the extra costs in comparison to the gained performance.
