Advantages of TiN Coated Thread
When are TiN coated gages recommended?
- Where the product material is abrasive causing excessive wear on
the gage or any high volume application where there is continuous
or frequent usage. The extra hard surface and lubricity of TiN coating
greatly extend the wear life. This also permits longer
between recalibration. The gold color serves as a wear indicator.
When the gold is worn off, the gage is undersize.
- Due to its inert, hard characteristics, TiN coating provides a
high resistance to corrosion making it ideal when humidity and
other atmospheric conditions create corrosion problems.
- When gaging certain soft materials or plated product threads that
tend to "load up" on the flanks of steel gage-- the lubricity
properties of TiN greatly aid in preventing this buildup.
Why is TiN better than Chrome?
- TiN is harder than Chrome, therefore more wear resistant.
- TiN provides better lubricity than Chrome, thus cutting down wear
- TiN is a more uniform coating than chrome, eliminating possible
uneven buildup on the gage flanks.
- TiN does not gall in aerospace type material.
- TiN coated gages outlasted chrome gages as much as 3 to 8 times.
