Titanium nitride surface treatments leverage physical vapor deposition (PVD) technology to improve surface hardness, prevent wear and reduce friction for sliding surfaces. They’re also ideal for protecting parts that have sharp edges or must be applied to tight geometrical tolerances.
PVD is a complex process. Titanium is evaporated by a high-energy source within a vacuum, and the resulting vapor reacts with nitrogen to create a strong, thin and durable film on a substrate.
We can engineer titanium nitride surface treatments that:
With our titanium nitride expertise and PVD capabilities, you have many possibilities.
Better wear and abrasion resistance than stainless steel
Exceeds physical properties of common industry coatings
Prevents dulled edges and blade changes on cutting surfaces
Uniform application thicknesses to micro-inches
USDA and FDA compliance
If you require a surface treatment that’s a cut above common coatings, our experts are available to help you review your options.Request a quote
Keeping packaging equipment up and running is top priority for engineers and plant personnel. Faced with ever-increasing productivity benchmarks based on fast and efficient operation, packaging engineers must continually fight against issues such as sticking, premature wear, abrasion and corrosion. To eliminate these challenges, nano-engineered coatings are being used to protect machine components and solve performance problems in food, pharmaceutical and consumer goods packaging.
The development of computer-controlled asphalt testing equipment to simulate and then quantify and predict the punishment which various asphalt mixes will be able to endure when used to pave actual roads has placed enormous burdens on the components of that test equipment. To stand up to simulations of heavy road wear, equipment designers have had to look beyond the conventional and to seek out materials that could endure tremendous stress. That was precisely the position in which the worldwide, leading supplier of such equipment, Pine Instrument Company of Grove City, Pennsylvania, found itself.
