Improve tool life and product quality by increasing high hot hardness, thermal stability and galling resistance
Hot Forming of ferrous and non-ferrous alloys
During hot forming of ferrous and non-ferrous alloys, higher temperatures and limited lubrication options can result in severe adhesive, abrasive and erosive wear of the tools, not to mention poor product quality. A protective coating that provides high hot hardness, thermal stability and galling resistance can significantly improve tool life and product quality.
Ionbond™ coatings, which are also available in combination with nitriding as a duplex option, have a proven track record in the following hot forming applications:
