Zirconium Nitride is a ceramic coating applied by PVD coating technology. It exhibits a combination of properties which make it attractive when tapping Aluminium and Aluminium alloys. Zirconium nitride is a hard ceramic material similar to titanium nitride and is a cement like refractory material.Thus it is used in refractories, cermets and laboratory crucibles. When applied using the physical vapor deposition coating process it is commonly used for coating medical devices, industrial parts (notably drill bits), automotive and aerospace components and other parts subject to high wear and corrosive environments.
