Automotive Parts
Piston Pins
Turbo Charger

If you need stable conditions in tribological contacts under high loads at high temperatures of up to 800° Celsius, BALIFOR™ M from Oerlikon Balzers guarantees the best protection of both friction partners.

The excellent compatibility with lubricants and additives is one of the main advantages of BALIFOR™ M. It is the alternative solution when carbon-based coatings suffer from thermal degradation and/or are not compatible with aggressive lubricants.

Properties of MoN-based coatings can be adjusted over a wide range:

  • 15 – 35 GPa film hardness
  • COF in (minimum) lubricated systems similar to a-C:H (DLC about 0.06)
  • High compatibility to lubricants and additives, not affected by MoDTC 
  • Stable up to 450° C, HT versions up to 800° C
  • Very low wear and counter-body wear
  • Gradient layers and running-in layers
