Ionbond™ CVD 10 TiN - TiCN - TiN

Traditional CVD Coating for use in metal forming applications

Ionbond CVD 10 is a CVD TiCN coating with a high hardness, good toughness and wear resistance, and a lower coefficient of friction than other CVD coatings like Ionbond™ CVD 13. This combination of properties makes Ionbond CVD 10 a preferred product over Ionbond CVD 13 for open tolerance tooling used in light to medium metal forming applications involving stainless steels, steel alloys with thicknesses greater than 3 mm, and high strength low alloy (HSLA) materials.  

Ionbond CVD 10 can be deposited between 800 and 1000°C. Therefore it is only recommended for tool materials compatible with the CVD process. In addition, dimensional change will occur on tool steel materials coated with Ionbond 10. Therefore, sufficient dimensional tolerances are required to accommodate the expected dimensional change. The broader deposition range for Ionbond CVD 10, as compared to that for Ionbond CVD 13 and Ionbond™ CVD 02, allow for it to be used on tool steels like S7 (1.2355) or A2 (1.2363), which are not compatible with the deposition process for Ionbond CVD 13 or Ionbond CVD 02.
