Created exclusively by and for Usines Métallurgiques de Vallorbe, the Valtitan® treatment is a unique surface coating that gives products a surface hardness of 72 HRc.
Essential for materials that are difficult to file, the chromium-plating process makes the file harder, stainless and extends its service life considerably. It is also highly resistant to corrosive or humid environments, without the need for lubrication protection
A Valtitan® file does not burr, but encourages chip removal.
This particular coating also acts as a thermal barrier which allows the file to preserve its hardness when retouching hot workpieces.
