TECHNOLOGY OVERVIEW

More About DLC Coating

What’s DLC Coating?

Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating is a thin layer applied to surfaces, mainly metals, to enhance their properties. It consists of carbon and hydrogen, mimicking the structure of natural diamonds. DLC is known for its hardness, low friction, and chemical inertness.

It's applied using methods like chemical vapor deposition or physical vapor deposition. This coating is used in industries such as automotive and aerospace, where it improves wear resistance and durability of components like engine parts and cutting tools.

Additionally, biocompatible DLC variants are utilized in medical applications, including coatings for implants. DLC coatings provide a balance of hardness and protective qualities across various sectors.

Advantages of DLC Coating

  • Enhanced hardness
  • Increased wear resistance
  • Improved corrosion resistance
  • Low friction coefficient
  • Extended tool life
  • Enhanced cutting performance
  • Versatile application across materials
  • Reduced friction and heat generation

Design Considerations for DLC Coating

  • Choose compatible metals, ceramics, or polymers.
  • Thoroughly clean and prep the substrate for better adhesion.
  • Select CVD or PVD based on application needs.
  • Use pre-treatments or interlayer coatings to enhance adhesion.
  • Customize for intended hardness and wear resistance.
  • Ensure the coating withstands the intended temperature range.
  • Implement strict quality control during and after coating.
  • Customize for specific needs like conductivity or biocompatibility.
