TITANIUM (Ti) FOR TITANIUM NITRIDE (TiN) AND TITANIUM CARBONITRIDE (TiCN) STANDARD COATINGS
Titanium as an all-purpose weapon for titanium nitride and titanium carbonitride based coatings for tools and decorative applications
Extension of the service life by three to four times with titanium nitride layers
With titanium nitride layers, a massive extension of the service life of precision tools can be achieved. TiN is still the best solution for many applications: both in the manufacture of tools and decorative applications due to its ceramic surface properties and an exclusive touch with a gold-like color.
Very high hardness 3000 HV
Coefficient of friction 0.55
Maximum operating temperature 575 ° C
Layer thickness of 1-7 µm
Insensitive to acids and bases
High adhesive strength
Tool life three to four times longer than that of uncoated tools
Injection and die casting applications
Decorative applications indoors and outdoors
Titanium Carbonitride TiCN - a good candidate for cutting or forming metal
With titanium, sophisticated TiN and TiCN coatings are possible that:
have high hardness and toughness
offer excellent properties of wear resistance
due to their low roughness (TiCN layers) offer effective protection against cold welding
Due to the gold-like color, enable the production of inexpensive and at the same time exclusive-looking decorative products
Both ARC, Sputter, HiPIMS as hybrid coatings can be produced
TO MEET THE HIGH MARKET AND CUSTOMER REQUIREMENTS
The crystal structure of TiN can be adjusted by its broad deposition temperature from 180 ° C to 480 ° C.
This means that specific coating parameters can also be individually adapted.
Low-stress TiN coatings can be produced by optimizing coating parameters.
