BALINIT D Significantly harder with undiminished corrosion resistance


BALINIT® D has similar corrosion resistance to hard chromium plating, but is significantly harder, has better coating adhesion, and is also foodstuff-neutral.

This chromium nitride coating is ideal for mirror polished moulds, photo-etched moulds or electrical discharge machined moulds. It is also used for plastics injection moulds in applications with aggressive substances such as volatile fluorine or chlorine, the forming of low-strength metal sheets, and other motor sports or aviation industry applications.

A low temperature ARCTIC version.of BALINIT® D is also available for sensitive materials.

  • Resistant to fluorine, chlorine and other aggressive substances
  • High coating adhesion and hardness
  • Very high corrosion resistance
  • Excellent de-moulding properties
Coating material CrN
Coating technology Arc
Coating colour silver-grey
Coating hardness HIT [GPa]* 18+/-3
Coefficient of friction (dry) vs. steel** ~0.5
Max. service temp. [°C]**** 700
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.
