Abstract: Abstract: Advanced material with antibacterial properties would be a promising way to improve the disinfection process in food plants. Our objective was to combine the bactericidal effect of TiO 2 with the mechanical strength of TiN coatings. A TiO 2 rutile film was obtained after annealing of a supplied 316 stainless steel with a TiN coating. This TiO 2 upperlayer displays a photocatalytic activity under UV light exposure. The substrates with the TiN coating and the TiO 2 upperlayer are more hydrophobic than…
