CrN-based coatings

Durable and corrosion-resistant wear protection for demanding applications

Balinit Croma

CrN coatings, abbreviated for chromium nitride coatings, are high-quality surface coatings created by applying a layer of chromium nitride. These coatings provide remarkable wear protection, corrosion resistance and hardness. CrN coatings are used in various industries, including forming tools, machine components and parts subject to wear.

Oerlikon Balzers offers a wide range of chromium nitride-based BALINIT® coatings. These help our customers to make molds, machine components and components subject to wear in the motorsport, automotive and aerospace industries more durable. They also demonstrate their outstanding corrosion resistance and excellent abrasion resistance in the injection molding and extrusion of recycled polymers and highly abrasive materials such as glass fiber-filled plastics.

Thanks to their food-safe properties, CrN coatings can also be used in the food industry. Find out more about the advantages of our CrN coatings on the subpages.
