BALIFOR T The ta-C solution for high temperature environments in the automotive industry


In some applications, BALINIT® DLC (Diamond-like-Carbon) coatings may reach their limits with respect to their operating temperatures exceeding more than 350° C, intermittently dry running and due to their incompatibility to aggressive additives (e.g. high concentration-MoDTC). Where BALINIT® DLC cannot meet the requirements, the ta-C-coating from Oerlikon Balzers, BALIFOR™ T, is the solution.

Setting the standards in coating technology for decades, Oerlikon Balzers has delivered ta-C coatings with a high energy arc-evaporation process for years, now rolling them out into the automotive market in one combined solution that includes pre- and post-treatment. This „package“ includes the unique Controlled Contact Pressure Post-Treatment Process explicitly customised by Oerlikon Balzers, thus constantly delivering reliable results.

BALIFOR™ T offers the differentiating characteristics for:

  • High temperature applications (depending on pressure)
  • Low lubrication applications for longer periods
  • Aggressive additive environments
