The multifunctional multilayer coating for extreme wear

The Duplex-VARIANTIC®-1000 is a multifunctional multilayer coating that represents an expansion of our PVD coatings for the forming process. Its high layer adhesion and excellent protection against abrasive wear is the reason it has been developed especially for the cold forming of highstrength steels.
