MTUPlus Tip Protection

MTUPlus Tip Protection

The tips of V2500 and PW2000 high-pressure turbine blades are reinforced with a coat of CBN (cubic boron nitride) particles. The MTU-developed method of brazing the CBN coat in place is an optimized alternative to the previously known electroplating process. The CBN particles are evenly distributed in the brazing tape so that a homogeneous and extremely wear-resistant hardfacing is produced.
