BALINIT TISAFLEX for machining difficult-to-cut materials
BALINIT TISAFLEX for die-sinking end mill
BALINIT TISAFLEX for ball nose end mill

Titanium, nickel-based alloys, stainless steel and hardened steel push cutting tools to their performance limits. Consequently, industries in which these materials are increasingly being used – mould-making, aerospace, the 3C industry (computers, communications and consumer electronics) - are facing new challenges.

BALINIT® TISAFLEX from Oerlikon Balzers provides outstanding oxidation resistance, high thermal stability and excellent wear resistance. The new high-end coating solution is thus the perfect solution for machining these demanding materials.

  • Superior oxidation resistance and thermal stability
  • Exceptional wear resistance
  • Perfect coating solution for machining difficult-to-cut materials like titanium, nickel-based alloys, stainless steel and hardened steel

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.
