How much money will your company make when the output of your dies increases by 50-200%? What about from a reduction in downtime? Combination of Titanide and cryogenic processing results in increased profitability to manufacturing operations by ensuring large gains in wear resistance and lubricity. Contact and friction points on dies also create wear, and so does each new workpiece by introducing two- and three-particle abrasive wear to the die, ultimately leading to the removal of dimensional tolerances which cause dies to become unserviceable.

Coupled with deep cryogenic treatment, Titanide ensures that the structure of a die, from inside to outside, is protected from spalling, galling, and erosive wear. What about tooling and cutters? It’s important to look beyond the sharpened “fine” edge of tooling or cutters to discover what really matters when you’re focused on improving wear resistance: trailing edges are a leading cause of tooling burn-up and overall cutter failure. Titanide ensures drag from trailing edges is greatly diminished given the lubricious nature of Tungsten DiSulfide particles.

What is the Titanide – Tungsten DiSulfide (WS2) Surface Treatment?

300 Below’s Titanide treatment is a lamellar molecularly bonded tungsten disulfide compound offering superior quality performance in lubrication over traditional lubricant technologies. Simply put, it’s the strongest slickest lubricant you’ll ever need. Since Titanide can be applied to every type of metal and a majority of man-made materials at room temperature, we have engineered a unique application process to ensure comprehensive adhesion, minimal waste and increased applicational efficiency for even small quantity treatment batches. Similar to cryogenics, Tungsten DiSulfide (WS2) was originally pioneered by NASA for use in its space programs. WS2 technology has since proven viable for all industries served by 300 Below, and was brought in-house for further testing and development. Once we pioneered our unique adhesion system, Titanide emerged as a complementary application for most of the components already subjected to our cryogenic treatment process.
