Chromium Nitride

Wear and corrosion are constant enemies of metal components and legacy coatings like Hard Chrome and Nickel Boron just aren't up the task. Wear and corrosion create increased downtime, lost production, greater maintenance, more headaches, and increased costs. Whether your producing plastic parts using injection molding techniques, machining precision components, or manufacturing premium firearms, the tools you use and the products you produce should be protected from wear and corrosion. That's where an ultra-thin, high-performance coating like chromium nitride comes in. Chromium nitride is a high-hardness, low friction, corrosion resistant coating that can increase the life of your components, tooling, or parts, and look good doing it!

E2 for the Win!

E2 is a proprietary coating engineered to combat wear and corrosion, allowing your components, parts, and the systems they’re in to last much longer with less maintenance and lower costs.
E2’s increased hardness works to prevent galling, fretting, and adhesive wear. E2’s corrosion resistance increases component longevity. The super-low coefficient of friction of E2 results in less heat generated during high-speed processes. E2 can also withstand high temperatures without sacrificing high-performance characteristics, making it perfect for high temp applications.

Should you bring your component coating in-house? This is a question we hear a lot of companies asking. What we have found is that focusing on your core competency leads to better results. That’s why we focus on coatings. We don’t sell machines and coatings and coating services and condiments.

We’re experts at coating technology. We’re constantly thinking about coatings, how to make them better, how to apply them better, and how to keep our clients ahead of their competitors through the adoption of next generation coating technology. We want to be a trusted ally in your production process and ensure your product is leading edge, not lagging behind. Why bring it in house when you can bring in the experts?
