Tribobond™ coatings for replacement of hard chromium

Ionbond Tribobond™ PVD coatings exhibit properties that meet, or exceed, those of hard chromium they replace and can be specifically optimized for each application.

Enhanced properties and reduced overall component cost

Tribobond™ coatings with a typical thickness of 5–10 microns are much thinner than hard chromium, offer increased hardness, a reduced coefficient of friction and enhanced adhesion with fewer tendencies to crack. Fine features like threads, recesses etc. are maintained.

Unlike hard chromium plating, Tribobond™ PVD does not require machining back to size, which results in shorter manufacturing time and lower overall component manufacturing cost.
