The LUTZ BLADES coatings range includes the following choices

TiNStandard hard coating with tough resistance to wear with a relatively high coefficient of friction (compared with steel as a reference material: 0.4 to 0.7), usually gold coloured, safe use at up to approx. 300 °C
TiCHas lower resistance to wear than TiN and a considerably lower coefficient of friction (compared with steel as a reference material: 0.3 to 0.5), usually charcoal grey
TiCNTakes a position between the high wear resistance of TiN and the low coefficient of friction of TiC, relative position between TiN and TiC depending on C and N content, usually charcoal grey
TiAlNHas greater resistance to oxidation than TiN with a comparable coefficient of friction, usually charcoal grey
ZrNWith wear resistance similar to TiN, but with a more dense morphology than TiN and, as a result, more resistant to pitting under comparable load, usually steel colour
DLCHas a high wear resistance and a low coefficient of friction (approx. 0.1 compared with steel as a reference); sensitive to impacts and high temperatures (between 100° and 300 °C depending on structure)
CrNLower wear resistance than TiN. The advantage of CrN is it has a lower inherent tension than TiN. As a result, can be used for applications with high bending loads
Non-stick coating Teflon® (PTFE), very low static friction allows a smooth cut, therefore a popular coating at medical devices. Because of the low surface tension almost no contamination with the cut goods. Acid- and base-resistant, not suitable in combination with Na (sodium). Temperature resistant up to 250°C (480°F). Medium wear resistance
Coloured lacquerApplied to entire surface, acts as an aid to sorting different material thicknesses and as anticorrosion protection.
Blueing and blackeningApplied to entire surface, some anticorrosion protection and thickness protection, also aids differentiation.

As one would expect, coatings of the cutting edge can be combined with full-surface coatings.
