With the machines being at the forefront in today’s growing industries, there is a great deal of stress and wear on tooling components. PVD coating allows you to improve the performance of these components by enhancing the surface hardness and wear resistance as well.
Coating with PVD can reduce ones expenses. Due to the high surface hardness, the tooling components are more efficient seeing that they are able to run longer. Another reason is, PVD coated components can be resharpened and re-coated which means less tool replacement.
PVD is the most environmentally friendly alternative compared to out dated metalization techniques.No heavy metals or any harmful agents are used. No toxic residues and polluting substances are produced from any stages of the process. PVD is safe, clean and harmless.
Tool coating has properties such as:
- Wear resistance
- Low friction
- Corrosion resistant
- Holds sharp edges
- Non-stick surface
- Erosion resistant
PVD coating is usually between 2.5 microns to 5 microns. A thicker coating can be applied if needed. As for the surface hardness, this will depend on the material that the components are being coated with.
