PM Steel Battles Persistent Tool-Wear Problems
Typically, metalformers increase galling resistance of their tools by investing in nitriding the tool or by applying surface coatings such as CVD or PVD. Vancron 40 eliminates these processes. The steel is alloyed with nitrogen, which creates an integrated surface coating and a tool surface with very low friction that improves a tool’s resistance to galling or cladding and adhesive wear.
