WIPO Patent Application WO/2012/014507
Kind Code:
Disclosed is a wear-resistant member made of titanium metal, which further improves wear resistance such that said member can withstand even harsh sliding friction wear conditions. Specifically disclosed is a wear-resistant member made of titanium metal that has little wear under harsh sliding friction wear conditions such as sliding contact with a carbon fiber reinforced plastic material and that demonstrates the mechanical strength inherent to titanium alloys. The wear-resistant member made of titanium metal is provided with: a carburized layer (2) formed by plasma carburization and disposed on a raw material (1a) for the titanium metal member (1); a polishing surface (2a) with a surface roughness of Ra0.01-0.80 µm disposed on the surface of the carburized layer (2); a titanium oxide layer (3) layered on top of the polishing surface (2a); and a non-crystalline carbon layer (GLC) (4) layered on top of the surface of the titanium oxide layer. A flat GLC layer (4) that does not attract concentration of stress is securely disposed on top of the titanium oxide layer (3). The polishing surface (2a) with a given surface roughness is able to transmit carbon ions by the appropriate adjustment of plasma carburization temperature and carburization gas density; and the plasma carburization conditions are selected and the carburization layer is disposed at or deeper than the polishing surface (2a).
