From middle 2017 the new LEUCO planing knives will be available optionally coated by LEUCO Topcoat - a quite young but already proven special coating by LEUCO. Probands were enthused by the triple edge lives compared to uncoated knives. The new LEUCO TopCoat coating effects a anti-adhesion property of the planing knives and avoids unwanted heating.
The coated knives are for use in all common planing cutter heads. Resharpening can easily be done and without any damaging of the coating. After resharpening the knives reach the triple edge lives again and additionally increase the profit.
