Precision for every application

Coating does not equal coating. At RUBIG, customers can have their products refined in different ways. It depends on four basic factors which coating is the best solution: field of application or load condition, base material, heat treatment condition and surface condition.


Not only metals, but also ceramics, glass, plastic or textiles can be coated according to the material. The coating temperature covers a wide range from room temperature to 500 °C. 

When choosing the right coating, we are by your side in an advisory capacity to guarantee the best result for you!

Tools and components must be able to withstand higher and higher loads. Their surface forms the contact surface to the harsh environment - just like the skin in humans. Wear, cracking and corrosion always start from the surface and can ultimately destroy the entire component or tool. Functional wear protection or hard material coatings provide protection, they increase edge hardness, wear resistance and many other properties. But they can only fulfill this task if the overall network is ideally tailored to the high requirements.


Which coatings does RUBIG offer?

What are the advantages of RUBIG coatings?

Products with RUBIG coating can sometimes be used for the whole lifetime of a product and do not have to be replaced due to early wear. When it comes to sustainability, coated products are the clear winners. With little effort, a significant increase in performance can be achieved, which results in lower resource consumption due to reduced spare parts requirements.

Which coating for which industry?



In order to extend the service life of automotive components, coatings are used. Further advantages are improved wear and corrosion resistance.

The automotive industry is a global driver of the global economy and the demands on components in this sector are increasing every day. Topics such as driving comfort, service life and the environment are more important than ever. PVD hard coatings can positively contribute to these fields. In addition to engine or transmission parts, elements of the interior can also be coated. PVD can also be used as an environmentally friendly alternative to Cr6 and offers a wide range of applications thanks to its versatile coating systems. The development of customized specific coatings is also possible with this method.

RUBIG coating systems

Selection of the coating system depending on the application
z. B.: AlCrN, CrAlN, TiAlN, CrN, CrCN, ZrN, ZrCN, DLC, DLC+MoS2

  • Powertrain
  • Combustion engine
  • Components for optical finishing


In addition to a functional purpose, almost all products also meet decorative requirements. Special colors in combination with metallic feel and wear resistance are just one aspect.

In contrast to electroplating or painting, decorative PVD coatings lead to increased scratch resistance. Thus, even with constant use, the service life can be increased drastically. PVD coatings can be used as an alternative to chrome coatings thanks to their metallic appearance.

  • Combining functionality and appearance
  • Indoor & Outdoor
  • Sports & Leisure Equipment
  • Luxury goods


In the areas of aluminum die casting, plastic processing and metal forming tools are under heavy loads. Wear and corrosion on the surface reduce the service life and thus increase the production costs. Coatings help to improve the service life as well as corrosion and wear resistance. These coatings can also be used for plastics in order to reduce production costs.

RUBIG coating systems

Selection of the coating system depending on the application
e.g. AlCrN, CrAlN, TiAlN, CrN, CrCN, ZrN, ZrCN, DLC Variants
DUPLEX process for maximum service life: First nitriding, then coating

Metal forming
Deep drawing, punch-out or embossing
  • Increasing the service life of the functional surfaces
  • Reduced cold welds enable better surface quality
  • Reduced production costs and reduced lubricant requirements
Plastics processing
Molding tools, injection molding and extruders, blow molding, machine parts
  • No/less adhesion
  • Protection of polished surfaces
  • Better demolding behavior
  • Distinction: Plastic touches, or does not touch the tool
Die casting
Molds, cores, mold inserts
  • Reducing abrasion and erosion and also adhesions
  • Reducing fire cracks
  • Increased service life and casting quality
  • Lower demolding forces
