BALINIT CROVEGAPerfect protection for smooth surfaces

×
BALINIT CROVEGA coated

High wear protection combined with good corrosion resistance makes BALINIT® CROVEGA a much sought-after solution for smooth surfaces. Coating adhesion and hardness are higher than with hard chromium plating, while oxidation resistance is unchanged.

Foodstuff-neutral CROVEGA is extra dense and smooth, and therefore ideal for plastics injection moulds and other highly polished moulds.

    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.
  • Application

    Recommendation Application

    • Moulds used in medical environment.
    • Plastic injection moulding (plastics that, during processing, outgas chlorine, fluorine or other aggressive volatile contents)
    • Excellent for moulds surfaces which are mirror polished, photo etched or EDM.

    Tools applications

    • Plastics processing Plastics processing

      The benchmark for injection moulding and extrusion
