TD (Thermal Diffusion) Coating for metalworking tooling
TD Coating Centre
TD Coating, carbide coating, press tool coating,
TD is the king of press tool coatings. Developed by Toyota Central Research Labs specifically to assist in their deep deep drawing operations of chassis and cross member components, this coating technology has withstood the test of time and continues to perform better than any other coating in this field.
The key is vanadium carbide that is diffused onto the tool steel surface at over 1000 degrees C. This creates the best bond to the base material and therefore maximum duribility of the ~90 HRc layer that is formed.
TD is applied to many other applications in metal working such as punches, rollers, pump pistons and chain link pins to extend the life of the surface by multiple times.
