BALINIT CROVEGAPerfect protection for smooth surfaces

×
BALINIT CROVEGA coated

High wear protection combined with good corrosion resistance makes BALINIT® CROVEGA a much sought-after solution for smooth surfaces. Coating adhesion and hardness are higher than with hard chromium plating, while oxidation resistance is unchanged.

Foodstuff-neutral CROVEGA is extra dense and smooth, and therefore ideal for plastics injection moulds and other highly polished moulds.

    Specifications

    BALINIT CROVEGA
    Coating material CrN
    Coating colour silver-grey
    Coating hardness HIT[GPa]* 18+/-3
    Coefficient of friction (dry) vs. steel** ~0.5
    Max. service temp. [°C]**** 700
    General remark All given data are approximate values, they depend on application, environment and test condition.
    *Coating hardness HIT[GPa] Measured by nano indentation according to ISO 14577. For multilayers the hardness of the different layers varies.
    **Coefficient of friction (dry) vs. steel Determined by ball-on-disc test in dry condition with an Steel ball according to ASTM G99. During run-in the given values may be exceeded.
    ***Intrinsic stress [GPa] Measured by XRD and/or bending method (Stoney equation). The calculated thermal stress has been substracted.
    ****Max. service temp. [°C] These are approximate values out of the field. Due to thermodynamic laws there is a dependency of pressure in application.
  • Application

    Recommendation Application

    • Moulds used in medical environment.
    • Plastic injection moulding (plastics that, during processing, outgas chlorine, fluorine or other aggressive volatile contents)
    • Excellent for moulds surfaces which are mirror polished, photo etched or EDM.

    Tools applications

    • Plastics processing Plastics processing

      The benchmark for injection moulding and extrusion
