Micro-arc oxidation technique (MAO) treatment produces a layer of alumina film on the surface of the aluminum alloy. A hard and uniform tetrahedral amorphous carbon film (diamond-like carbon, DLC) was deposited on the top of the alumina layer of the 2024 aluminum alloy by a pulsed filtered catholic vacuum arc (FCVA) deposition system with a metal vapor vacuum arc (MEVVA) source. The morphology and tribological properties of the duplex DLC/Al2O3 coating were investigated by a scanning electron microscope (SEM) and a ball-on-disk sliding tester. These results suggested that the duplex DLC/Al2O3 coating had good adhesion and a low friction coefficient, which improved significantly the wear resistance of aluminum alloys.
