Chromnitrid Cromcarbonitrid für Hartstoffbeschichtungen

CHROME NITRIDE / CHROME CARBONITRIDE
- CrN / CrCN - FOR HIGHLY ELASTIC HARD MATERIAL COATINGS 

Due to their high smoothness, improved ductility and high oxidation resistance during processing, chromium nitride layers are very attractive for industrial applications.

High smoothness, excellent wear resistance and ductile behavior with high elasticity of CrN / CrCN coatings

CrN can be deposited up to a thickness of 55 µm without detaching from the coated substrate. When combined with Cr, CrN is also an excellent interface material and is useful in multilayer structures to control stresses during the deposition of composite transition metal nitrides.

  • in high temperature sliding applications, in nuclear power plants, piston rings and valves at engine outlets

  • are ideal for weaving machines and thread guides in the textile industry

  • have high bending loads

  • Protect plastic and rubber molding tools from wear and corrosion

  • are particularly suitable for mechanical applications and cutting tools due to their excellent adhesion to the base materials

  • Used in plastic injection molding modules because of their superior smoothness and ductility

  • They are also used in food packaging because they are extremely dense and smooth
