AR/M16 Bolt Carrier Group – Micro-Polished Titanium Nitride – HPT/MPI
- Components coated in Titanium Nitride, which is the staple of Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) hard coatings, solves “tribological” problems with machine components that can be coated at temperatures of 800-850° Fahrenheit.
- “Tribology” is the science and engineering of interacting surfaces in relative motion. It includes the study and application of the principles of friction, lubrication, and wear.
- This Nanocrystalline technology is accomplished by embedding Nanocrystalline (AICrN) grains into an amorphous matrix. Advancements allow for the formation of higher nanohardness coating with greater thermal stability than conventional coatings.
- Applied using a lateral rotating cathode technology in a PVD process, materials are vaporized from a solid source in the form of atoms/molecules and then transported in the form of vapor through a vacuum, low pressure gas/plasma to the substrate where it condenses. Following the coating process the components are Micro-Polished to achieve an amazing luster that performs under conditions of high load with higher reliability over other conventional coatings.
- Advantages of this coating include abrasion resistance, chemical resistance, corrosion protection, extreme temperature resistance, high wear resistance, extreme hardness, oil/fuel resistance, increased lubricity, low coefficient of friction, oxidation resistance, and low thermal conductivity.
