Tribological coatings are mainly used to reduce adhesive wear, associated, for instance, with seizing or cold-welding. A low friction coefficient and good sliding properties make them ideal for low lubrication and even dry running applications.

BALINIT® C is a WC/C-based coating, and thus a mixture of metal and diamond-like carbon. The result is the ideal way to reduce surface fatigue and tribo-oxidation. 

  • Reduces adhesive wear
  • Low friction coefficient
  • Good sliding properties
Coating material a-C:H:Me (WC/C)
Coating technology Sputter
Coating colour anthracite
Coating hardness HIT [GPa]* 8-12 / 12-15
Coefficient of friction (dry) vs. steel** 0.1 - 0.2
Max. service temp. [°C]**** 300
Process temperature [°C] < 250
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.
****Max. service temp. [°C] These are approximate values out of the field. Due to thermodynamic laws there is a dependency of pressure in application.
