Tribobond™ 15 TiAlCrN

High impact fatigue wear resistance coating for high temperature

Ionbond’s Tribobond™ 15 TiAlCrN coating possesses an excellent combination of properties; high hardness, excellent toughness and high impact fatigue wear resistance. Tribobond™ 15 also features high temperature stability, which makes it an excellent candidate for high temperature applications such as parts of turbochargers, piston rings and titanium components like engine valves and other high temperature exposed parts.

Tribobond™ 15 TiAlCrN protects against oxidation, sliding, fretting and adhesive wear. It has a low coefficient of friction against steel and good abrasive wear resistance.
