cerid® V-TEC coatings by Aalberts surface treatment are high-performance multi-layer coatings consisting of titanium aluminum nitride (TiAlN) and titanium carbon nitride (TiCN). Despite low coating thicknesses between 3 and 6 µm, both materials ensure finishes with a high degree of hardness and good tenacity. Consisting of TiCN, the top layer has a low coefficient of friction, thus offering ideal protection against cold welding. These hard coatings are also recommended for the reduction of lubricants.
cerid® V-TEC is a very robust and wear-resistant coating solution which scores in the area of metal forming as well as in other applications. This surface finish also ensures long service lives in the areas of plastics processing, punching tools and machine components.
