BALINIT DLC STARMultifunctional coating with Superior Tribological Arrangement (STAR).

BALINIT DLC STAR coated for diesel injector
BALINIT DLC STAR coated for collet chucks

BALINIT® DLC STAR is a modified diamond-like carbon coating with enhanced load bearing capacity. A hard, durable metal-based layer (chromium nitride) provides the required surface hardness and increases the resilience of the superposed, tribologically effective carbon coating. BALINIT DLC STAR has even higher tribological performance (pressure, times, velocity-value) than BALINIT C, BALINIT C STAR and BALINIT DLC. It is therefore used for the highest loaded components in diesel injection systems and engine components.
