Great general purpose coating for numerous applications.

Improved hardness, toughness, wear resistance over TiN coating with very low COF.

Forgiving coating with high surface hardness at elevated temps.

Versatile coating with a low COF and higher breakdown temperature than TiAlN.

Extremely hard and tough coating with a higher break down temperature than TiAlN / AlTiN. Excellent wear resistance when combined with DCT's post treatment process.

Exceptional abrasion resistance and lubricity.

Great sliding wear resistance, ductile and helps prevent cold welding. Similar in use to hard chrome plating.

Superb hot hardness with extra ordinary wear resistance under extreme mechanical stress.

Ideal for coating PM steels used on cold work applications. Enhances performance of precision instruments under extreme compressive loads.

What others say
