BALINIT coatings Just a couple of thousands of a millimetre make all the difference

BALINIT coatings BALINIT coatings are just a few thousandths of a millimetre thick but harder than steel; these low-friction coatings are extremely wear-resistant and chemically inert. The optimum coating is determined on the basis of both conditions of use and economic considerations. The material and properties of BALINIT coatings can be selected to match the customer′s specific requirements.

The typical coating thicknesses that can be reproduced in mass-production lie between 0.5 µm and 4 µm. Sharp edges, textured or mirror surface finishes and close production tolerances remain unaltered. Therefore no finishing work is required and the coating can be carried out as the final production step.
