Heavy duty forming tools must be able to withstand extreme loads, whilst, at the same time, being productive, efficient and reliable for manufacturing. The BALINIT® DUPLEX Series meets these demands by combining two well-proven wear protection solutions: nitriding and hard coatings.
Nitriding increases surface hardness, compressive strength and hot hardness, and creates a homogeneous hardness profile. BALINIT® coatings are characterized by extreme hardness, high thermal stability and excellent protection against abrasive wear.
Together, they decisively improve your forming tools, and, thereby, the results of demanding manufacturing processes, such as mass forming, hot forming or sheet metal forming with tensile strength > 500 N/mm2.
DUPLEX versions of the BALINIT coatings ALCRONA PRO and LUMENA are available
