Original equipment manufacturers in the aerospace and power generation industries are looking for solutions to ensure that sensitive materials withstand environmental influences and operation at high temperatures. The durability and performance of critical components can be significantly improved by protecting them from premature wear with advanced surface solutions, significantly extending their service life. Recently, PVD (physical vapor deposition) has become a leading technology for these industries offering a REACH compliant and eco-friendly alternative to current coating technologies.
BALORA™ TECH PRO is an aluminum chromium oxide coating with a corundum type crystal structure that provides excellent adhesion to metallic and oxide materials. The coating can be applied to a variety of substrates such as aluminum, titanium, aluminides, steel, nickel alloys and super alloys.
Depending on the substrate material, the coating is stable at temperatures up to 1400°C. Designed to ensure components operate with maximum efficiency and reliability, BALORA TECH PRO provides an excellent barrier against diffusion, corrosion, hot corrosion, oxidation and mechanical wear, while being thin and uniform around even complex part geometries.
BALORA TECH PRO extends the service life of components without the use of rare earth materials.
