MOVIC is a molybdenum-based coat with a very low coefficient of friction (<0.1).
It is mainly used in dry machining processes on aluminium and high-strength steels. It is also used, however, for forming processes on stainless steel.
It is used wherever there is a demand for its low coefficient of friction and sliding properties, in such applications as ball bearings for the aerospace industry.
MOVIC can be used on all standard Blösch hard coatings except on those which already have an antifriction coating (-VIc and DLC). MOVIC should preferably be applied to TiCN-MP (STARVIC®) but it is also possible to combine it with all other coatings of us.
- Low moment of friction
- Low coating temperatures (< 150°C)
- Reduced build-up on the tool surface
- Improved chip flow
- Higher-quality surface finishes
- Recoating possible
