Can CARBINITE be applied to heat treated steels?
Yes, CARBINITE works best on hardened tool steels. CARBINITE will actually last longer and will stay sharper on hardened material. • Can CARBINITE be masked? Yes, Since CARBINITE is not a spray process it is easy for us to apply it only where it is wanted. We use a special tape for masking that has high heat resistance and high dielectric strength. • How thick can CARBINITE be applied? CARBINITE should not be used as a smooth surface build-up like hard chroming unless you only need about .0008″. CARBINITE can be applied up to .017″ thick but will not be smooth. • Is CARBINITE available in custom grades? Yes, CARBINITE process is infinitely adjustable, grades between our five standard grades are available. • Can CARBINITE be applied to aluminum? Yes, CARBINITE can be applied to some aluminum alloys such as 6061 and 7075. Due to the vast differences in melting point between aluminum and carbide, the bond is not as strong as the bond that we can get on steel. We have many customers that h
