When processing long runs of abrasive materials and inks, such as thermal paper, opaque white or luminous inks, the MCR coating prolongs the die’s lifespan considerably because it protects cutting edges from wear.

The specially developed hard chrome composite is applied to the flexible die surface via a galvanisation technique, achieving a hardness of approximately 1 200 HV.

The MCR coating does not impair tolerances, flexibility or magnetic adhesion. It can be combined with Wink’s non-stick coatings and laser hardening offerings.
