The Armoloy TDC® coating is a very hard chromium layer with a hardness of 1200 HV0.1. Due to this high hardness, coated parts exhibit excellent surface wear resistance.

However, it is important to note that the coating is only 2-7 µm thick and behaves like an eggshell. If the base material is subjected to impacts or forces, the Armoloy TDC® coating may also deform. Therefore, it is advisable to ensure that the base material has sufficient strength to ensure the longevity of the coating.
