In this work, the TiO2 coatings were synthesized by electrophoretic deposition (EPD) of nanosized powder in order to improve the tribological properties. Several characterization methods were applied to the coated substrates. The surface topography of the EPD layers, their morphology, composition, and mechanical properties were investigated. The influence of heat treatment, which results in calcination, on the wear performance of coated films was also examined. It was noticed that the effect of the normal force and sliding velocity on the coefficients of instantaneous and stabilized friction was not the same in treated coatings and untreated ones. Moreover, the treated and uncoated films showed a close relation between the dissipated accumulated energy and the worn volume. The energetic wear coefficients of fretting wear were also studied. As expected, the treated coating reduced the energetic wear coefficient, which enhanced the resistance to fretting wear.
