Oerlikon Balzers Benelux


Oerlikon Balzers is the leading global

supplier of PVD coatings which

improve the performance and service

lives of precision components as well 

as metalworking and plastics 

processing tools. These proprietary coatings developed by Oerlikon Balzers and marketed under the BALINIT® brand are extremely thin and very hard.


BALINIT® coatings show added value  

in following applications: 

-Cutting tools (new or reconditioned)

-Punching and forming tools, die casting and plastic moulds

-Components in general engineering applications 

Online coating-guide is available. This guide enables the users to determine the right coating for his specific application :



- New weekly extra coating solutions in Benelux : Topping, a high-end post treatment of your cutting tool coatings,pre- and postpolishing and/or advanced service for punching and forming tools.

- Latest developed coatings like :

BALINIT® DYLYN, BALINIT® HARD CARBON are now weekly available.

- Full range of BALINIT® DIAMOND

MICRO or NANO coating dedicated for graphite/composite machining, short delivery time.



Our DYLYN coatings meet the wear resistance and friction characteristics needed for your component. The application is well-established in many industries. We frequently apply the amorphous coatings to parts and components for the engineering, automotive, plastics processing, and semiconductor industries.


 PPD™ (Pulse Plasma Diffusion) process


Wear protection for large tools in cast iron and steel.

40 years' experience in the industrialisation of plasma processes and the close collaboration with press shops in the automotive industry gave the desire to develop improved treatment concepts for large press tools.



 PRIMEFORM™, the innovative and highly efficient treatment for brilliant mould surfaces

PRIMEFORM™ service is a plasma supported treatment system, where a diffusion layer with a surface hardness gradient is produced, wear and corrosion protective properties of the base material are improved.



Developed especially for processing of highly adhesive plastic and elastomer materials. The coating excels through its thin top coating which is doped with special constituents. These form a glass like structure with a very low degree of surface energy. This property results in highly wear resistant surfaces with an extremely low tendency of sticking.


PVD optimised components for practical use

Automotive - Whether engines or drive trains, oil pumps or brakes, headlights or rims, bodywork or interior: in motor cars, trucks and motor cycles there is hardly anything, in manufacture or in operation, where BALINIT® is not involved.

Aerospace - The solution of wear problems affecting aircraft components begins with the exact analysis of mating surfaces, including all the participating ambient influences. BALINIT® hard coatings portfolio.
