BALINIT CNI BALINIT CNI is a chromium nitride coating which thanks to a special coating method is particularly dense and smooth.

BALINIT CNI High wear resistance, good corrosion resistance and good sliding behaviour at deficient lubrication make BALINIT® CNI a popular substitute for thin, electroplated chromium and nickel coatings. BALINIT® CNI is bio-compatible and foodstuff-neutral.
