BALIQ MICRO ALTINOS - versatile coating solution for micro-machining
BALIQ ring

With the AlTiN-based BALIQ® MICRO ALTINOS Oerlikon Balzers offers another dedicated pefectly smooth coating for micromaching, especially for applications up to 56 HRC.

With its perfectly smooth surface BALIQ® MICRO ALTINOS guarantees trouble-free chip removal and reduces the formation of built-up edges, whilst, at the same time, providing outstanding adhesion.

It is highly wear-resistant when subjected to high temperatures and exhibits almost no tendency to stick. The special properties of the BALIQ® coatings eliminate the need for mechanical post-treatment.

  • High micro-machining process reliability and efficiency
  • No post-treatment required
  • Precise, high performance coating
  • Reliable production of critical and expensive components

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.
***Intrinsic stress [GPa] Measured by XRD and/or bending method (Stoney equation). The calculated thermal stress has been substracted.
****Max. service temp. [°C] These are approximate values out of the field. Due to thermodynamic laws there is a dependency of pressure in application.
