BALINIT CROVEGAPerfect protection for smooth surfaces


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.
