Markedly improved tool and component performance with Balzers' thin-film coatings. BALINIT coatings are just a few thousandths of a millimetre thick, but harder than steel. These low-friction, thin-film coatings are extremely wear-resistant as well as chemically inert. The optimum coating is determined both by the intended usage conditions and economic considerations. The composition and properties of BALINIT coatings can also be tailored specifically to the customer’s needs.
Typical reproducible coating thicknesses in mass-production lie between 0.5 µm and 4 µm. As a result, sharp cutting edges, textured or mirror surface finishes and precise production tolerances are, in most cases, unaltered by the coating process.
