what kind of coating or plating will help to decrease the friction coefficient between the stainless steel and another steel at a room temperature?

Hello Anatoly. I don't think this combination galls like stainless on stainless, but there are many different coatings that can reduce the friction including chrome plating, silver plating, or cadmium plating. Zinc alloy plating may be able to substitute for the cadmium. There are also dry-film lubes, teflon coatings, etc.

You haven't told us if this is a fastener application, or some kind of wear plate, or what. But if it's a repetitive wear surface, hard chromium plating is the traditional finish to beat.

WE CAN recommend TWO COATINGS FOR REDUCED FRICTION:
NICKEL TEFLON AND NICKEL WITH NANOPARTICLES
