    Exceptional precision

    High precision in coating thickness distribution guarantees extremely sharp edges. Outstanding results are achieved especially with tools that have ultra-small diameters.

    Revolutionary smoothness

    BALIQ® enables smooth chip removal and eliminates the need for mechanical post-treatment. Adhesion and built-up edges are avoided even with difficult-to-machine materials.

    High density

    The density of BALIQ® coatings is very close to the greatest density theoretically possible. High toughness and high resistance to crack propagation and diffusion are salient features.

    Excellent friction

    Among other benefits, the excellent coefficient of friction of BALIQ® results in improved chip flow and reduced built-up edge formation.
