Calico D is a Nanocomposite structure. This is accomplished by embedding nanocrystalline AlTiN grains into an amorphous matrix. This advanced Nanocomposite Technology has allowed the formation of a higher nanohardness coating with greater thermal stability than any conventional coating typically used in extreme environments. Calico-D is normally applied to steels and hardened steels where high wear resistance is needed. Can be stripped and recoated.

Calico D is applied using lateral rotating cathode technology in a PVD (physical vapor deposition) process. Material is vaporized from a solid source in the form of atoms/molecules and then transported in the form of a vapor through a vacuum, low pressure gas/plasma to the substrate where it condenses. Calico-D application temperature is 450°C.
