Zirconium nitride (ZrN) coating excels in machining aluminum alloys and non-ferrous metals, optimal for temperature-sensitive substrates. Produced at a low deposition temperature makes ZrN the premier coating for temperature-sensitive substrates. You will find ZrN to have an attractive light gold color to be found in wear-resistant decorative applications and medical tools. Due to its high lubricity, it is a good candidate for machining nonferrous metals such as titanium, brass, copper, and aluminum.
ZrN is a favored option for machining fiberglass, nylon, and most polymer materials, renowned for its elevated hardness, minimal friction coefficient, and remarkable resistance to corrosion. It effectively shields against both abrasive and adhesive wear.
