SurfTech 6012

A TiCN Thin Film Coating

SurfTech 6012 Series is a TiCN coating that is applied by a PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) process at temperatures BELOW 200°F. The thickness of the coating is (2 – 4 µm) or approximately .0001 – .0002. The thin uniform nature of SurfTech® coatings allows exact duplication of the surface finish and will not alter the dimensional integrity .


The SurfTech 6012 coating hardness is (2800 Knoop) harder than TiN and has excellent lubricity. Although the coating performs well in most applications, it has had its most success in slightly abrasive and or gummy materials, like cast iron and brass.
