Ionbond™ 01 TiN

PVD Coating for use in stamping, cold forging and plastic injection molding applications

Ionbond™ 01’s hardness, and wear resistance, makes it an ideal coating for blanking, trimming, and piercing tools as well as plastic injection molds for glass or fiber filled resins. These properties along with the excellent impact resistance make Ionbond™ 01 also one of the most common coatings for cold forging tools.

Ionbond™ 01 is often used as a wear indicator in can making and plastic injection molding applications because of its golden color.

Ionbond™ 01 can be deposited over a wide range of temperatures. The process allows a variety of tool materials to be coated below the respective tempering temperature which ensures that no softening or dimensional changes occur.
