BALINIT TRITONCarbon coating with unusually dense structure


BALINIT® TRITON combines a high degree of hardness with an extremely low friction coefficient. A carbon coating (DLC), it thereby provides particularly good protection against abrasive and adhesive wear, even under minimal quantity lubrication or dry working conditions. Its unusually dense structure moreover improves corrosion resistance.

Foodstuff-neutral BALINIT® TRITON is ideal for applications such as plastics injection moulds and non-lubricated systems.
