Aluminum Titanium Nitride (AlTiN)
Looking for oxidation resistance? Titanium aluminum nitride (TiAlN) or aluminum titanium nitride (AlTiN) is what you want.
The design of our AlTiN coating provides exceptional oxidation resistance and extreme hardness. That's why this coating works well in very demanding cutting tool applications, especially when tools are being pushed to the max.
• Thickness: .0001" - .0002" (2 - 5 microns)
• Hardness: 4000 - 4200 Hv
• Deposition Temp. 700° - 800°F
Case History #1
3 Corner Carbide Insert (TiAlN)
• Workpiece: 304 Stainless Steel
• Results: Alpha™ - 2x life over TiN
TiAlN – 3x over Alpha™
With Better Surface Finish
• Coating Cost - $2.50 - $4.00 per tool,
depending on size.
What's the difference between TiAlN and AlTiN?
The difference in the description is due to the Al/Ti ratio in the film. TiAlN is typically 50/50 Al/Ti, while AlTiN has a higher concentration of aluminum, typically being 70/30 Al/Ti. Since our coatings have a high percentage of Al in the film, our coating is more of an AlTiN coating than a TiAlN coating.
