CROMVIC - Chromium Carbo-Nitride coating



CHARACTERISTICS

It's part of the family of DLC coatings (Diamond Like Carbon).

It is realized with electric arc technology and is composed of a layer of adhesion of Chromium Nitride and a layer of amorphous carbon.

The main characteristics of this coating are the low coefficient of friction and high chemical inertia, combined with good hardness and good adhesion to the substrates.

It is realized out at a temperature of 250 °C, this broadens a lot the field of applicability.

 

APPLICATIONS

CROMVIC is used in the molding of plastic materials, even in the absence of release agents, in the sheared and shaping of light alloys and, in general, of pasty materials.

It is frequently used to coat mechanical organs of various types, such as extractors for molds, trolleys and centering of molds, camshafts, valves and other, where the reduction of friction is crucial.
