Your tools are heavily stressed in production, with high mechanical and thermal strains. Nonetheless, productivity has to be increased. For these demands we created BALINIT® ALCRONA PRO, the top level all-rounder for cutting, punching and die casting. With this coating we were able to significantly excel the performance curve of the already proven BALINIT® ALCRONA. This results in an extremely wear resistant coating with excellent hot hardness and thermal shock stability. In short: The universal coating for superb results in dry and wet machining at high cutting speeds.

  • Broad application range
  • Excellent wear resistance
  • Exceptional thermal shock stability and hot hardness
  • Significantly increased cutting speed possible
  • Increase utilization and productivity

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. Hardness can be adapted to the application.
**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.
***Intrinsic stress [GPa] Measured by XRD and/or bending method (Stoney equation). The calculated thermal stress has been substracted.
****Max. service temp. [°C] These are approximate values out of the field. Due to thermodynamic laws there is a dependency of pressure in application.
