AlCro-X – Aluminium Chromium Nitride

New coating for application on shearing, bending and drawing dies as well as aluminium and zamak die casting dies.

This coating is made with an innovative equipment which allows to create a very thin, almost droplet-free structure, and therefore a very low intrinsic roughness.

AlCro-X has an excellent adhesion to substrates thanks to a high-energy etching step, implemented for the first time by a chemical reaction activated by plasma, which makes surfaces particularly reactive to further coating.


When to use the AlCro-X coating



SHEARING, BENDING AND DRAWING DIES

AlCro-X is the new coating made from Aluminium and Chromium Nitride which has been developed by miniToolsCoating for application on shearing, bending and drawing dies.

ALUMINIUM AND ZAMAK DIE CASTING DIES

This coating contains a high percentage of aluminium and is suitable for very high operating temperatures. This is why AlCro-X is suitable for aluminium and zamak die casting dies as well.
