Casidiam: Coating for Extreme Conditions

Casidiam® - Coating for Extreme Conditions

Casidiam® by Industrial Hard Carbon is the latest addition to our DLC coatings portfolio. The extremely hard base layer of Casidiam® increases the load-carrying capacity and scratch-resistance of its tribologically effective DLC top layer even further, making it the perfect coating for applications where extreme contact pressures combine with sliding velocities.
