BALINIT® DLC STAR is a modified diamond-like carbon coating with enhanced load bearing capacity. A hard, durable metal-based layer (chromium nitride) provides the required surface hardness and increases the resilience of the superposed, tribologically effective carbon coating. BALINIT DLC STAR has even higher tribological performance than BALINIT C, BALINIT C STAR and BALINIT DLC. It is therefore used for the highest loaded components in diesel injection systems and engine components.

    General remark All given data are approximate values, they depend on application, environment and test condition.
    *Coating hardness HIT[GPa] Measured by nano indentation according to ISO 14577. For multilayers the hardness of the different layers varies.
    **Coefficient of friction (dry) vs. steel Determined by ball-on-disc test in dry condition with an Steel ball according to ASTM G99. During run-in the given values may be exceeded.
    ****Max. service temp. [°C] These are approximate values out of the field. Due to thermodynamic laws there is a dependency of pressure in application.

    Recommendation Application

    These features are important for engine components, soft base materials such as aluminium or coppers, and pumps, compressors and other components exposed to high mechanical loads. The defect-free surface is most valued for textile machines.
