BALINIT MOLDENA The new coating for injection moulding & extrusion of filled polymers


BALINIT® MOLDENA is 7 µm thin, exceeds the hardness of almost all previous coatings for processing plastics and offers outstanding abrasion and corrosion resistance.

These properties make it the perfect coating for injection moulding and extrusion of abrasive materials such as glass fibre reinforced plastics, and it is also ideal for injection moulding of corrosive materials such as fully recycled materials or those with a high flame retarder content.

Coating material CrN/CrON
Coating technology Arc
Coating colour Dark rainbow
Coating hardness HIT [GPa]* 28 +/-3
Coefficient of friction (dry) vs. steel** ~0.5
Max. service temp. [°C]**** 700
Process temperature [°C] 350
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.
