FortiPhySM CrN Thin Film Coating –
At a Glance

FortiPhy™ CrN thin film tool coating, metal surface coatings with super adhesion and density.Phygen Inc. announces FortiPhySM CrN UltraEnduranceSM Coatings. Using our patented plasma acceleration process, we apply ultra endurance coatings that increase durability and toughness while reducing friction, wear, and corrosion. FortiPhy thin-film coatings have vastly superior adhesion, structure, uniformity, and density compared to other commercial coatings.

Our patented process delivers a more energetic plasma to create a coating that consists of nano-sized particles. This produces a more uniform, nanocrystalline microstructure, for the toughest coatings possible. Lower processing temperatures keep critical part dimensions within tolerance, for less rework. Our extremely good process control and management of coating thickness allows us to custom-tailor our coatings for specific applications.

On the production line, FortiPhy significantly increases the useful life of hard working tools, dies, molds, and other assets, while improving the quality of parts produced. In metal working, die casting and injection molding applications, FortiPhy safely decreases wear and friction in precision tools and components and is approved by the FDA for repeat-use in food processing and food packaging equipment (FCN: 00823). Specify FortiPhy for your high-wear parts and you will immediately see reduced friction, increased uptime, and measurably improved performance.

FortiPhy coating’s key characteristics include:

  • High surface hardness and toughness (for reduced abrasive wear and fatigue)
  • High cohesive strength (for less brittleness and higher critical loads)
  • Unmatched adhesion (for longer coating life)
  • Very low coefficient of friction (for improved sliding, rolling, rotation, and release)
  • Excellent corrosion and abrasive wear resistance (for longer useful life)
  • Low processing temperature (for reduced dimensional, physical, or finish changes)
  • Inert (for safer medical implants and prosthetics)
  • Approved for food contact (for improved versatility in a variety of industries)
  • Stoichiometric, chemically complete coating (does not decarburize substrate)

Wherever metal meets metal, wherever high-performance steel meets harsh environments, wherever critical parts need lower friction and longer life, Phygen’s FortiPhySM metal surface coatings is the one to specify.
