BALINIT BWear protection under extreme conditions

BALINIT B coated
BALINIT B coated for hob
BALINIT B coated for extrusion punch
BALINIT B coated for punch die
Taps that are more resilient thanks to BALINIT® B
Optimum results assured by careful handling.
Ideal for highly stressed moulds.

BALINIT® B coated tools are characterized by very high hardness and good toughness. This coating is especially wear resistant and its low coefficient of friction provides tools with effective protection against cold-welding. BALINIT® B is moreover food-safe.

The proven TiCN-coating displays its special strengths in tapping and thread forming, high load punching and metal forming applications.

    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.
    ****Max. service temp. [°C] These are approximate values out of the field. Due to thermodynamic laws there is a dependency of pressure in application.
