BALINIT coatings for the composites industry

News International-French

14 Mar 2012

JEC Europe 2012 - Oerlikon Balzers specializes in the development of coatings and coating processes and provides coatings that significantly improve the performance of tools and precision parts. Marketed under the BALINIT brand name, the coatings are extremely thin, harder than steel and considerably reduce friction and wear.


Carbide tools coated with BALINIT DIAMOND CLASSIC make it possible to cut graphite workpieces at high speed with greatly improved quality. Thanks to the significantly extended tool life, sophisticated, complex workpieces can be produced using a single cutter in a single clamping.



The solution for aluminium alloys and composite materials has an especially smooth, nanocrystalline structure that facilitates chip flow and prevents the formation of built-up edges. Cutting forces are significantly reduced. No reworking is necessary thanks to the excellent surface quality of the workpieces.
