Quinary Ti–B–C–N–Si nanocomposite films were deposited onto AISI 304 substrates using a pulsed d.c. magnetron sputtering system. The quinary Ti–B–C–N–Si (5 at.%) film showed excellent tribological and wear properties compared with those of the Ti–B–C–N films. The steady friction coefficient of 0.151 and a wear rate of 2 × 10−6 mm3N−1m−1 were measured for the Ti–B–C–N–Si films. The oxidation behavior of Ti–B–C–N–Si nanocomposite films was systematically investigated using X-ray diffraction (XRD), and thermal analyzer with differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). It is concluded that the addition of Si into the Ti–B–C–N film improved the tribological properties and oxidation resistance of the Ti–B–C–N–Si films. The improvements are due to the formation of an amorphous SiO x phase, which plays a major role in the self-lubricant tribo-layers and oxidation barrier on the film surface or in the grain boundaries, respectively.
