  • Optimax—a multi-layer coating with an Optima base and a second layer of molybdenum disulfide for added lubricity;
  • Wearbeater—a PVD coating used for piercing, blanking and forming applications in softer materials;
  • TiCrN—a nano-layer coating for piercing in high-pressure forming applications;
  • TiAlN (AITiN)—a hard coating for high-heat applications;
  • TiZrN—a wear resistant coating for piercing and forming of nonferrous materials;
  • AlCrN—a chromium composition well-suited to high-impact applications;
  • Forte—a proprietary multi-layer nano coating for punching and forming high-strength, low-alloy steel in all thicknesses; and
  • Slip-Max—a low friction, multi-layer coating that greatly reduces material adhesion.
