Coatings Help Prevent Tearing and Sticking

Round form applications are especially prone to material tearing and sticking. Along with surface finish and tool steel, choosing the right coating can make a big impact on performance. See the following resources to help inform your coating choice.

Surface Finish:
You Can Feel the Difference

Surface finish is part of the trifecta of solutions we apply to achieve optimal round forms. Tool steel and coating make up the rest.

Your fingertips don’t lie. You can feel the consistent smoothness in the surface finish of an Impax round form punch. We use a special polishing process that ensures the most stick-free finish on our tools. It not only feels smooth, but results in less material tears and greater consistency in your finished part.
