BALINIT FORMERA Withstands even tough AHSS forming applications

Chassis forming application

To provide increased passenger safety, and simultaneously comply with emissions legislation, future vehicles must be stronger and yet lighter. Each new vehicle model therefore contains a higher proportion of modern, high strength steel than its predecessors.

To ensure high productivity when forming these demanding steels, especially resilient coating solutions are required – such as BALINIT® FORMERA.

  • Up to 680% more efficient than comparable coatings
  • Great abrasive wear protection
  • Excellent coating adhesion
Coating material CrAlN-based
Coating technology Arc
Coating colour Silver-light grey
Coating hardness HIT [GPa]* 28 +/-2
Coefficient of friction (dry) vs. steel** 0,35
Max. service temp. [°C]**** 900+
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.
