Oerlikon Balzers received qualified supplier status from Airbus for its two customer centers in Britain and France for copper alloy substrate coatings using Balinit C. Both locations are already certified as qualified suppliers of coatings on steel, titanium and Inconel substrates.

Balinit C is a coating applied to aerospace components made of steel, titanium and various alloys that reduces surface fatigue, withstand wear and high loads, while being lightweight and exhibiting low-friction. The technical qualification of the coating, as a non-hazardous and Reach-conforming option to hard chrome plating, completes the Airbus industrial qualification process for both Oerlikon Balzers customer centers in Britain and France.
