Chromium Nitride

The relatively high hardness, in combination with a low level of brittleness allows the coating of thicker layers with good adhesion. This means an additional wear reserve for many applications. In areas where corrosion resistance is also required, as well as abrasion resistance, the CrN coating represents the ideal solution. 

The chrome-nitride (CrN) coating is characterized by the following properties:

  • High hardness and adhesion
  • Very good chemical resistance
  • High temperature resistance in air
  • Thicker layers possible
  • Low coefficient of friction against steel
