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.
Hot Forming coating applications
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:
Hot Stamping & Press Hardening
Hot Stamping & Press Hardening
One of the fastest-growing trends in metal forming is the stamping and press hardening of AHSS and generation-3 steels. The tools used in these applications are subject to abrasive and adhesive wear and demanding thermal conditions. Ionbond™ PVD coatings provide the thermal fatigue and galling resistance to significantly improve tool productivity and enhance product quality.
Heat-checking, soldering, and wash-out issues are very common in die casting of aluminum, magnesium and zinc alloys, because die cavities, cores and inserts for those processes are subject to severe thermal, corrosive and erosive conditions. To overcome these issues and improve tool productivity, Ionbond™ PVD coatings provide thermal stability, abrasion resistance and corrosion resistance.

Tools used in hot forging applications need to function in demanding thermal conditions where they are subject to high forming pressures and severe abrasive and adhesive wear conditions. Together, this can severely limit the tool life and overall productivity. Ionbond™ PVD coatings improve tool productivity and product quality by providing the tools with increased thermal stability and resistance to thermal fatigue and galling.

The tools used in hot extrusion applications of both ferrous and non-ferrous alloys are subject to high forming pressures, severe abrasive wear, adhesive wear driven by corrosion, and very high temperatures. For these challenging applications, especially for tools with complex geometries and large aspect ratios, Ionbond™ CVD coatings provide excellent thermal stability, chemical inertness, hot hardness and corrosion resistance properties.
