Surface Treatments and Coatings for Improved Productivity

Dayton Progress

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.

XVP

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.

XPS

Super-smooth polish on the point to reduce galling and improve punch life. Use with the appropriate coating for your application to maximize punch life and reduce maintenance costs. Excellent for extruding applications.

Abrasive Wear

DayTiN® (XNT)

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 coating. Provides superior abrasive wear resistance and lubricity. A very good general-purpose coating for all materials. Upgrade over XNT. Approx. hardness: *Vickers 3000.

DayTAN™ (XAN)

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

ZertonPlus™ (XNA)

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

XANL

High hardness and temperature resistance of XAN coating topped with an anti-frictional coating with excellent lubrication properties. Approx. Hardness: Vickers 3000.

XCD

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

XCDP

Super-smooth finish combined with a DLC coating for a very low coefficient of friction with high wear resistance. Excellent for stamping aluminum. Approx. Hardness: Vickers 2800.

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 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.
