Layer features

General

high layer hardness, oxidation resistance, chemically inert behavior

Decoration

abrasion-resistant, scratch-resistant, improved corrosion resistance, long term- and brilliance-stable, homogeneous colour distribution

Functionality

improved lifetime of tools and machine parts, increased feed rate and cutting speed (higher productivity and reduced lubricant application)

Layer-specific

ideal for ductility, less galling prone, chemically inert
