Alternate Recommendation: Use this coating when the primary recommendation is not available.

Editor: Dr. Tibor Cselle PL1011ev1

Design:

• Thickness and structure can and should be different according to the different application processes even for the same coating. • The exponent x (coatingx) is defined by the machine, which coating generation the machine can deposit.
