BALINIT TRITON STAR Carbon coating with exceptionally dense structure, supported by Superior Tribological ARrangement (STAR)


BALINIT® TRITON STAR combines a high hardness with an extremely low coefficient of friction. Being a diamond-like carbon coating (DLC), it provides particularly good protection against abrasive and adhesive wear. The added metal-based support layer (chromium nitride) significantly increases the load-bearing capacity and makes BALINIT® TRITON STAR the coating of choice e.g. for a wide range of popular aluminium forming processes.

Coating material CrN / a-C:H
Coating technology PACVD
Coating colour black
Coating hardness HIT [GPa]* ~15-25
Coefficient of friction (dry) vs. steel** 0.1 - 0.2
Max. service temp. [°C]**** 300
Process temperature [°C] < 250
General remark All given data are approximate values, they depend on application, environment and test condition.
*Coating hardness HIT [GPa] Measured by nano indentation according to ISO 14577. For multilayers the hardness of the different layers varies. Hardness can be adapted to the application.
**Coefficient of friction (dry) vs. steel Determined by ball-on-disc test in dry condition with an Steel ball according to ASTM G99. During run-in the given values may be exceeded.
****Max. service temp. [°C] These are approximate values out of the field. Due to thermodynamic laws there is a dependency of pressure in application.
