BALINIT D Significantly harder with undiminished corrosion resistance

Outstanding de-moulding properties – ideal for the automotive industry

BALINIT® D has similar corrosion resistance to hard chromium plating, but is significantly harder, has better coating adhesion, and is also foodstuff-neutral.

This chromium nitride coating is ideal for mirror polished moulds, photo-etched moulds or electrical discharge machined moulds. It is also used for plastics injection moulds in applications with aggressive substances such as volatile fluorine or chlorine, the forming of low-strength metal sheets, and other motor sports or aviation industry applications.

A low temperature ARCTIC version.of BALINIT® D is also available for sensitive materials.
