Titanium Aluminum Nitride (TiAlN)

CeraTough®-0102: TiAlN/CrN

Titanium Aluminum Nitride (TiAlN) is IBC’s premier coating for die casting applications, finding uses also in plastic injection molding and metal forming.

Properties Unique CeraTough®-0102:

  • Capable of achieving high thickness (up to 10µm)
  • High thermal stability and oxidation resistance (800°C)
  • Extremely high hardness, high thickness, and high temperature stability mitigate washout and prolong life in die cast tooling
  • Can be coupled with pre-nitriding to create a “duplex” coating that is extremely resistant to thermal fatigue and heat check
  • Excellent release properties against molten aluminum and a range of thermoplastics (PE, PP, ABS, PC, PEEK, and others)
