Powder compaction

Abrasive wear of powder compaction tools can be an issue depending on the powder’s physical characteristics (particle size, hardness, etc.). The chemical composition of such powders can also introduce sticking or adhesive wear and corrosion. During ejection of the compacted parts, frictional forces can introduce wear of the tool. Ionbond’s PVD and PACVD coatings, with their superior adhesion,  wear resistance and corrosion resistance, can improve tool life and product quality, ensuring perfect-looking products with a flawless finish.
