BALINIT B coated for hob
BALINIT B coated for extrusion punch
Taps that are more resilient thanks to BALINIT® B
Optimum results assured by careful handling.
Metal Forming

BALINIT® B coated tools are characterized by very high hardness and good toughness. This coating is especially wear resistant and its low coefficient of friction provides tools with effective protection against cold-welding. BALINIT® B is moreover food-safe.

The proven TiCN-coating displays its special strengths in tapping and thread forming, high load punching and metal forming applications.

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.
