BALINIT ALNOVA Reliable milling of the most demanding materials

ALNOVA enables more reliable milling of the most demanding materials

Machining operations in the energy production market are becoming more challenging all the time. For example, materials must withstand increasingly higher temperatures. Consequently, the machining tools for these tasks need to be equipped with a wear-protection coating that is able to meet these high demands. BALINIT® ALNOVA is the ideal solution due to its improved hot hardness, high oxidation resistance and very smooth surface.

  • Optimum coating adhesion
  • High thermal shock stability
  • Optimal for highly stressed cutting edges
Coating material AlCrN-based
Coating technology Arc
Coating colour light grey
Coating hardness HIT [GPa]* 38 +/-3
Intrinsic stress [GPa]*** -3 +/-1
Max. service temp. [°C]**** 1100
Process temperature [°C] < 500
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.
***Intrinsic stress [GPa] Measured by XRD and/or bending method (Stoney equation). The calculated thermal stress has been substracted.
****Max. service temp. [°C] These are approximate values out of the field. Due to thermodynamic laws there is a dependency of pressure in application.
