BALINIT FORMERA / FORMERA PLUSWithstands even tough AHSS forming applications

×
Chassis forming application

To provide increased passenger safety, and simultaneously comply with emissions legislation, future vehicles must be stronger and yet lighter. Each new vehicle model therefore contains a higher proportion of modern, high strength steel than its predecessors.

To ensure high productivity when forming these demanding steels, especially resilient coating solutions are required – such as BALINIT® FORMERA and BALINIT® FORMERA PLUS.

    Specifications

    BALINIT FORMERA
    Coating material CrAlN-based
    Coating colour Silver-light grey
    Coating hardness HIT[GPa]* 28 +/-2
    Coefficient of friction (dry) vs. steel** 0,35
    Max. service temp. [°C]**** 900+
    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.
