BALINIT® TRITON combines a high degree of hardness with an extremely low friction coefficient. A carbon coating (DLC), it thereby provides particularly good protection against abrasive and adhesive wear, even under minimal quantity lubrication or dry working conditions. Its unusually dense structure moreover improves corrosion resistance.

Foodstuff-neutral BALINIT® TRITON is ideal for applications such as plastics injection moulds and non-lubricated systems.

Coating material a-C:H
Coating technology PACVD
Coating colour black
Coating hardness HIT [GPa]* ~15-25
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.
