The datasets in this article are supplementary to the corresponding research article [1, 2]. The planar morphology and topography of TiC thin films coated on commercially pure Titanium (CpTi) grown by RF magnetron sputtering were investigated using Field emission scanning electron microscope (FESEM) and Atomic force microscope (AFM). The mechanical properties such as Hardness and Young Modulus of the thin film coating was studied using Nanohardness. Furthermore, grazing incidence X-ray diffractometer (GIXRD) and Raman spectroscopy were used to analyse the structural and composition of the TiC thin film coating.
