BALINIT LUMENAExcellent even under high mechanical stresses


The gloss level of textured injection mould surfaces must remain unchanged throughout their service life. The extremely high hardness of BALINIT® LUMENA fulfils these demands and is ideal for injection moulds for GF and CFK reinforced plastics, moulds made of steel with low hardness (< HRC 40), and for forming of high strength metal sheets.

The good insulating effect of the coating additionally improves melt flow and mould filling, further enhancing your productivity. For forming of high strength metal sheets and die casting applications BALINIT® LUMENA ADVANCED is available.
