Electroless coatings have been used in many industries now days due to their good properties, such as corrosion and wear resistance, hardness and uniform thickness. In this paper co-deposition of Co with Nickel-Phosphorus electroless coatings on low carbon steel AISI 1026 substrates was investigated. Surface morphology and composition of coatings were studied thorough SEM and EDX. XRD analyze showed that these coatings had amorphous structure with Co-P crystalline particles. Co-P particles increased the micro hardness of the coatings. A tribometer is an instrument that measures tribological quantities, such as coefficient of friction, friction force, and wear volume, between two surfaces in contact with each other. Result showed that Co-P electroless composite coatings increased wear resistance of the substrates.
