Surface Treatments and Coatings for Improved Productivity

Dayton's leading-edge coatings and other unique surface treatments have been developed to improve inplant performance by increasing tool hardness and wear resistance.

Surface Treatments

DayKool™ (XCR)

A cryogenic steel conditioning process used in addition to heat treating. An effective way to achieve optimum toughness, improved strength, and dimensional stability. Used primarily with hard, thick materials.

DayTride® (XN)

A low temperature, cost-effective surface application that treats all exposed surfaces. Provides increased dimensional stability. Ideal for punches and die buttons. Approx. hardness: RC73.

VersaPlus®

A thin film coating provides superior hardness (harder than carbide). Super-smooth finish on the point helps reduce galling and maintenance. Ideal for higher-than-normal punching frequency.

Abrasive Wear

DayTiN® (XNT)

PVD coating provides excellent wear resistance and lubricity. Not recommended for stainless steel, copper, or nickel. A good general-purpose coating. Approx. hardness: *Vickers 2300.

TiCN (XCN)

Ultra-hard (harder than carbide), thin PVD coating. Provides superior abrasive wear resistance and lubricity. Well-suited for stainless steel, nickel, and copper. Approx. hardness: *Vickers 3000.

DayTAN™ (XAN)

Ultra-hard (harder than carbide), high-aluminum PVD coating. Provides high temperature resistance. Well-suited for applications where surface heat is generated. Ideal for HSLA, dual phase, and TRIP steels. Approx. hardness: *Vickers 3400.

ZertonPlus™ (XNA)

PVD coating with superior hardness (harder than carbide); provides superior abrasive wear resistance and excellent lubricity. Provides highest temperature resistance, thermal shock stability, & hot hardness. Approx. hardness: *Vickers 3200.

Adhesive Wear

XNM

A solid PVD lubricant coating. Provides both lubricity and wear resistance not available from other PVD or CVD processes. Ideal for aluminum, pre-painted, and galvanized steels. Approx. hardness: *Vickers 2000.

XCD

Diamond-like carbon coating. Combines high hardness with an extremely low coeffcient of friction. Good protection against abrasive and adhesive wear. Ideal for aluminum. Approx. hardness: *Vickers 2500.

Extrusion Coatings

XNP

The ultimate coating for improved resistance to galling; excellent wear resistance, superior surface finish, and high lubricity. Ideal for extruding and forming applications. Tolerance is ±.0002”. Approx. hardness: *Vickers 3100.

XNAProgress (XNAP)

Ultra-hard PVD coating that absorbs shear stress; provides excellent high-temperature resistance. Ideal for stamping where tools are exposed to extreme stress profiles. A good alternative to TD coating without the dimensional changes associated with that process. Approx. hardness: *Vickers 3200.

Miscellaneous Coating

CRN

Excellent adhesion, high toughness, and good corrosion resistance. Primary applications are metal forming (copper, brass, & bronze), metal die casting, and plastic injection molding. Approx. hardness: *Vickers 1800-2100.
