If you need stable conditions in tribological contacts under high loads at high temperatures of up to 800° Celsius, BALIFOR™ M from Oerlikon Balzers guarantees the best protection of both friction partners.

The excellent compatibility with lubricants and additives is one of the main advantages of BALIFOR™ M. It is the alternative solution when carbon-based coatings suffer from thermal degradation and/or are not compatible with aggressive lubricants.

Coating material MoN
Coating technology Sputter / Arc
Coating colour Silver
Coating hardness HIT [GPa]* 15 – 35 depending on application
Max. service temp. [°C]**** 800
Typical coating thickness [µm] 2 - 4
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.
****Max. service temp. [°C] These are approximate values out of the field. Due to thermodynamic laws there is a dependency of pressure in application.
