General Characteristics: Titanium nitride is the most frequently used ceramic coating on machine tools, and has the longest history. Bright gold in color, it is often applied where both wear resistance and appearance are important.
Coating Services Group, LLC. deposits both single and multilayer versions of this coating. CSG also offers unique surface finish and masking capabilities.
Applied by an environmentally friendly PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) process, TiN coatings do not affect substrate surface finish.
