CC AluSpeed®

The light grey coating material, CC AluSpeed, was especially developed for high-performance machining of aluminium and aluminium alloys.

With its low affinity to aluminium, AluSpeed prevents the formation of built-up edges to a particularly large extent. The extremely smooth surface reduces friction on the face and makes machining easier.

Accurately constructed, the high degree of hardness also guarantees excellent wear protection.
