DURABLE + ATOMIC = DURATOMIC®
The result, Duratomic with an extreme level of both toughness and wear resistance, Duratomic will become the framework for coating development for years to come.
It will aso have a dramatic effect on industry raising the bar for productivity for everyone involved in metalworking.
The first coating that has been manipulated on an atomic level. The basic structure is Aluminium Oxide, as it represents a very good starting point for machining steel, but the coating's overall ductility has also been significantly enhanced. The cumulative result is improved mechanical and thermal properties together with altered toughness, far beyond the capabilities of any existing grade on the market.
"In order to think big, we first had to think small, very small" says Roger Granström, Marketing Product Manager, referring to the atomic manipulation.
"PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) and CVD (Chemical Vapor Deposition) coatings have performed very well for many years and will continue to do so in many applications, but our focus was to develop a brand new process to offer customers increased capabilities and to addness current challenges to improve their competitive standing. Duratomic, the best coating we have ever produced, has provided that boost".
