Magnagold

For extreme wear and tight tolerances

Magnagold®, an enhanced titanium nitride physical vapor deposition coating (PVD), resists wear and abrasion up to 20 times better than stainless steel. The coating provides a hard, smooth surface and a rich, gold color to metals without causing distortion or loss of hardness.

Technical advantages

Magnagold exceeds physical properties of common industry coatings such as titanium nitride (TiN), PVD, CVD or vacuum deposition. Magnagold properties include:

Magnagold titanium nitride
  • Hardnesses up to an equivalent of Rc 85
  • A dimensional accuracy of ± 0.000015 inches
  • Thicknesses between 1 to 3 microns
  • Meets AMS 2444
  • Operating range -360°F (-218°C) to as high as +800°F (427°C)
  • Resistant to most acids, alkalis, fluxes, solder, and weld spatter.
  • USDA and FDA compliance
  • Processing temperatures as low as 400°F
  • Excellent chemical resistance
