BALINIT LUMENA Excellent even under high mechanical stresses


The gloss level of textured injection mould surfaces must remain unchanged throughout their service life. The extremely high hardness of BALINIT® LUMENA fulfils these demands and is ideal for injection moulds for GF and CFK reinforced plastics, moulds made of steel with low hardness (< HRC 40), and for forming of high strength metal sheets.

The good insulating effect of the coating additionally improves melt flow and mould filling, further enhancing your productivity. For forming of high strength metal sheets and die casting applications BALINIT® LUMENA ADVANCED is available.

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.
