BALIQ TINOS - transparent part of a vacuum cleaner
BALIQ TINOS - top of the charging unit for a mobile phone

Considerably extended service life in plastic processing due to high hardness and outstanding smoothness.

  • Improved wear resistance
  • High process reliability
  • No post- polishing necessary

From flow speed to demolding - with BALIQ® TINOS best results in plastic processing can be achieved under all conditions of use. Its high coating hardness leads to up to 4 times better scratch resistance compared to steel, while the S3p coating process ensures particularly smooth, uniform surfaces.

As a result, this leads to improved parts quality with lower maintenance costs. Thus BALIQ® TINOS makes an important contribution to the optimization of all types of plastics processing.

Coating material TiN S3p
Coating colour golden yellow
Coating hardness HIT [GPa]* 30 +/- 3
Coefficient of friction (dry) vs. steel** 0.6
Max. service temp. [°C]**** 700
Typical coating thickness [µm] 2 - 4
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.
