BALINIT HARD CARBON coated
Hard Carbon
Hard Carbon

BALINIT® HARD CARBON is used for processing of non-ferrous metals. The coating is thin, smooth, and with a high hardness, making it ideal for the machining of aluminium alloys as well as other non-ferrous metals such as copper, silver or gold, GRP, CFK, and organic materials.

Tool manufacturers as well as end users in the automobile and aerospace industries, injection moulders and mould-makers, benefit from a number of advantageous properties:

  • High thermal stability
  • Sharper cutting edges than with diamond coatings
  • Outstanding wear protection
  • Excellent tribological properties
  • Biocompatible
BALINIT HARD CARBON
Coating material ta-C
Coating technology Arc
Coating colour black rainbow
Coating hardness HIT [GPa]* 50 - 60
Coefficient of friction (dry) vs. steel** 0.1 - 0.2
Max. service temp. [°C]**** 500
Process temperature [°C] < 150
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.
