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

improved abrasive wear resistance
