BALINIT® HARD CARBON is used for processing of non-ferrous metals. The coating is thin, smooth, and with a high hardness, making it ideal for the machining of aluminium alloys as well as other non-ferrous metals such as copper, silver or gold, GFRP, CFRP, and organic materials.

Tool manufacturers as well as end users in the automobile and aerospace industries, injection moulders and mould-makers, benefit from a number of advantageous properties:

  • High thermal stability
  • Sharper cutting edges than with diamond coatings
  • Outstanding wear protection
  • Excellent tribological properties
  • Biocompatible

High coating hardness

Protection against abrasive wear results in longer tool lifetime

Smooth coating surface with consistently sharp tool edges, for micro tools as well

Protection against adhesive wear and improved tool surface quality lead to reduced tooling costs

High thermal stability with a maximum application temperature of 500 °C

MQL and dry machining possible
Improved capacity utilisation
Reduced production costs

Low coefficient of friction due to reduced roughness

Low torques
Low tendency to adhesion
