The TiSiN-Cu nanocomposite coating was deposited on F690 steel substrate by arc ion plating. The structure and composition, tribocorrosion behavior and anti-microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) properties of TiSiN-Cu coating were investigated. The results show that the TiSiN-Cu coating has unique nanocomposite structures. The results of tribocorrosion show that the potential and current change of F690 steel and TiSiN-Cu coatings tend to be opposite. The reason is that the F690 steel is non-passivated metal and the TiSiN-Cu coating has passivation phenomenon. The TiSiN-Cu coating possesses excellent tribocorrosion resistance. Cu ion released from TiSiN-Cu coating can effectively inhibit the corrosion caused by SRB.
