Titanium Nitride is a compound with extreme hardness and heat resistance. Ions of Titanium are mixed with nitrogen ions in a vacuum chamber. This mixture is then bonded to part surface as an extremely uniform coating of Titanium Nitride. Because the coating is only .0001 thick, the geometry and concentricity of the part remain virtually unaffected. TiN coating provides an end mill with a surface hardness of over 80 Rc compared to high speed steel hardness of 63-67 Rc.
What are the Benefits of TiN Coating?
KEYWORDS for this category: pvd, physical vapor deposition, TiN
- Provides increased surface hardness: With a surface hardness of over 80Rc, the TiN coating protects against abrasion and provides protection against the damaging effects of heat.
- Provides increased durability: The hard, heat resistant TiN coating prolongs durability.
- Provides wear resistance: Since the extremely hard coating transfers far less heat than an uncoated part, the wear resistance is greatly increased, providing a much greater part life.
- Provides higher lubricity: The coefficient of friction of Titanium Nitride is lower than even that of hard chrome. This provides for quicker chip dissipation, less heat buildup, and a superior workplace finish.
