BALINIT® C STAR is ideal for soft base materials. Its hard, tough chromium nitride-based metal layer guarantees optimal surface hardness and support (load-bearing capacity) for the superposed carbon coating (WC/C).
The WC/C coating offers outstanding adhesive wear protection, while its low coefficient of friction reduces the risk of surface fatigue and tribo-oxidation. The compact chromium nitride layer simultaneously enhances component corrosion resistance.
The result is a flawless, homogeneous coating of unique quality and adhesion.
These properties make it the ideal coating for components made of soft base materials, such as titanium, non-ferrous metals or stainless steel, high surface pressures, plain bearings and gearings. At the same time, BALINIT® C STAR is ideally suited for non-lubricated systems in clean rooms and, thanks to FDA approval, for food production applications.
- Excellent protection against adhesive wear (scuffing)
- Reduces surface fatigue
- Reduces tribo-oxidation (fretting corrosion)
- Increases load-carrying capability
