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.

Testimonials & Clients

Joe GibbsJoe Gibbs Racing

IHC is very understanding of our industry and its unique challenges with our supply chain. Carrie and Nickie really get things done for us when we’re under the gun, which seems to be a lot with our suppliers’ late deliveries. IHC makes up lost lead time days with their quick response times.

I sell more DLC-coated pins over uncoated ones. It’s inexpensive insurance. I have also seen pins that look brand new after a 500-mile super speedway race.
