CALOX® - The CVD coating for cutting tools
This Al2O3 based high-performance coating is a guarantee for wear protection and high resistance against oxidation.
The coating scope of CALOX® is the high-performance machining of steel and cast iron. Typically hard metal turning and milling tools can be coated with this. A high degree of Al2O3 in the CALOX® coating ensures the excellent resistance against oxidation and the protection against wearing in very high working temperatures.
Furthermore, due to a multilayer structure, the coating shows high toughness, which helps to stabilize the wear protection of the surfaces and edges of the working area.
- Low heat conductivity for machining tools with very high heat resistance requirement
- Very high hot hardeness reduces abrasive and adhesive wear
- TiN layer for better wear-detection and recution of friction
- Special adhesion layer ability to bear big loads
