BALINIT® HARD CARBON is used for the machining 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, GRP, CFK, 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
