Hard-Coating

Composition and characteristics

  • Optional follow-up treatment of plasma nitrided components
  • The surface hardness of nitrided cases can be further increased and the friction decreased by a PACVD (Plasma Activated Chemical Vapour Deposition) aftertreatment.
  • PACVD-layer (3 – 5 µm) of titanium nitride, titanium carbon nitride, titanium boron nitride or diamond like carbon
  • Normally no white layer
  • Ductile diffusion zone
  • Super-hard surface
  • Increased wear resistance
  • Improving friction coefficient
