BALINIT FUTURA NANOHigh performance for metal forming and precision components


The high hardness and tenacity of BALINIT® FUTURA NANO gives outstanding protection against abrasive wear and erosion, making it ideal for highly stressed precision components even under high thermal conditions.  This is also the major benefit for plastic injection moulding and HSS and carbide tools.

The titanium aluminium nitride (TiAlN) structure results in an optimal relation of high hardness to residual compressive stress. This gives great performance especially for highly stressed components and metal forming tools.

For temperature-sensitive components BALINIT® FUTURA NANO ARCTIC is available with a coating temperature of only 200 °C.
