Applications

The most popular and economical hard coating. Reduces wear, maintains sharp edges, prevents galling, and reduces friction (1/2 the friction of steel vs steel)

More abrasion resistant than TiN. Works very well in machining of abrasive or soft metals and in forming operations

Ultra-hard material with higher working temperature than TiN and TiCN. Works extremelyu well in dry machining and high heat applications.

Tough coating used for sliding wear, release, and high temperature applications. Good corrosion resistance and chemical inertness. Twice as hard as hard chrome plating.

Provides extremely low coefficient of friction and retains and retains liquid lubricants. Excellent for bearing surface, gears, and plastic mold release. Can be applied in addition to hard coatings
