Get Superior Tool Life with TiCN Coating!
Optimize Tool Performance with TiCN Coating!
Want two to four times the tool life over TiN? Check out our titanium carbo-nitride (TiCN) PVD coating. Adding carbon to a TiN film increases the hardness nearly 80 percent, resulting in additional tool life.
TiCN is an excellent all-purpose coating, but does particularly well in punching, injection molding and cutting tool applications.
TiCN is easily stripped from common tool steels. This makes it ideal for those applications where you want maximum tool life, but also the capability to remove the coating when it wears through and reapply it.
