Hardide impact resistant coatings are deposited uniformly as a crack-free coating that is tough, ductile and able to survive impact and shock loads.

In many cases Hardide impact resistant coatings match the impact resistance of metal and, under impact, will deform with the substrate without chipping or flaking. Hardide coatings will not crack until the substrate reaches its yield point, and even then the coating remains bonded to the surface.

Hardide coatings’ ability to survive impact, shock loads and significant substrate deformations without spalling or cracking means that coated parts will retain their integrity and continue operating under harsh conditions, increasing productivity and reducing operational downtime.
