Wear Protection

Thin Film Products provides the specialized coating, called wear protection, needed in the manufacture of cutting, drilling, milling, and turning tools.

Specialized Coatings & Decorative Coatings for Today's Tools & Decorative Goods

The requirements for every type of cutting, drilling, milling and turning tools continue to grow and wear protection plays a big role in its longevity. Tungsten carbide tools can no longer live up to tough new standards. Today, all state-of-the-art tools need wear protection to extend tool life and fulfill the special needs of the cutting process.

Tools are not the only products subject to wear and tear that require special coatings. Included in the Wear Protection and Decorative Coatings line are PVD coatings for decorative goods and products such as door handles, bathroom fittings and automotive parts, a strong and growing business for Thin Film Products.
