Room-temperature black oxide
PRESTO BLACK® room-temperature
black oxide from Birchwood Technologies is suitable for small to medium-sized production operations
that require corrosion resistance
and galling protection on critical
surfaces for machine components.
The 15-min. process, which produces a nondimensional
coating thickness of less than 0.5 micron thick, is suitable
for components that require a black finish for visual appeal
and rust protection. It operates at 70 degrees and is tested
for up to 800 hours of humidity exposure when sealed with
an appropriate rust preventive.
The process provides a friable crystal structure that
serves as a sacrificial barrier on sliding surfaces to protect
the underlying steel from galling and deformation.
a hard, wear-resistant, lubricious coating
for punch press
tooling. It acts as a barrier between
the punch and sheet metal to help
improve stripping, reduce galling and
slug pulling, and extend tool life.
The proprietary coating outperforms currently available premium
coatings by two to eight times, claims
the manufacturer. Applied using nano-layer technology, it is a hard, dense
film that increases wear resistance
and lowers the friction coefficient.
The coating is designed for the company’s M4PM™, M2, and Durasteel™
punches in round, rectangle, oval, and
square configurations. Its application
effectiveness includes 3000 and 5000
series aluminum, galvanized and
stainless steels, prepainted material,
and vinyl-coated material.
