Four Available Crystallume Coatings

P47 Series

P38 Series


Premium Plus

Our thinnest diamond coating is only 2 to 4 microns thick and gives up tool life – for extreme edge sharpness. This coating is only available on end mills 1/4″ and smaller in diameter. Lightning is a diamond coating that is between Stealth and Standard Premium in thickness. This coating gives up tool life due to reduced thickness – for lower cost. For reference, it is approximately 8 to 12 microns on a 1/4″ end mill. Standard Premium is our original and the most versatile coating thickness. For reference, it is approximately 18 to 20 microns thick on 1/4″ and larger diameter tools. This is our best general purpose coating and is available on all products – end mills, drills, inserts and as a toll coating. Standard Premium Plus (also known as Milkshake Coating) is available as special order. This coating can be as thick as 30 microns for use in severe and extremely abrasive applications. This coating is available on end mills, drills, inserts and as a toll coating.
