ALTICROME – Alluminum Titanium Cromium Nitride coating



CHARACTERISTICS

Nano-structured coating, highly resistant to abrasion and corrosion, with high strength  at elevated temperatures and excellent anti-adhesive properties.

Thanks to its unique structure is also suitable to be easily polished (treatment PLUS), enabling a particularly smooth and sliding surface.

 

APPLICATIONS

ALTICROME was developed specifically for application to molds and components for the aluminum die casting , where you deal with high operating temperatures and the wear phenomena of abrasion and corrosion. Its low coefficient of friction and easy release property allow a better flow of the casting and a reduction of the phenomena of metallization, improving the quality and facilitating the extraction of the molded components.

The molds' maintenance is drastically reduced.

ALTICROME is used with excellent results on hobs and shaper cutters in HSS for the gears toothing, where its features allow an optimal chip flow even at high cutting speeds.

The possibility of performing systematically decoating, resharpening and new coating, allows very repetitive and reliable performance. This is an important fact for mass production.

ALTICROME is suitable for applications on molds for shearing and shaping of high alloyed steel and stainless steels, on punches and dies for mintaging and bending  In the molding of plastic materials loaded with glass fibers or carbon, ALTICROME is used because the excellent combination of hardness, smoothness and corrosion resistance.
