Industrial: Keeping Machinery Running Longer

Diamond-Like Coatings Keeping Machinery Running Longer



Diamond-Like Coating Keeping Machinery Running Longer

Industrial Hard Carbon thin film helps industrial manufacturers, plants or factories keep their plants online longer because the diamond-like coating is highly wear-resistant and has high hardness and high lubricity qualities. By allowing industrial machinery to be longer lasting, IHC makes the plants more efficient.

Oil & Gas

Protection from Corrosion and Elevated Pressures

In the oil and gas industry, it’s imperative machinery is corrosion resistant to resist salt water and mud, and it can withstand the pressure increases of drilling. Not only does IHC protect from corrosion, but it also is highly wear-resistant and extremely hard. Due to the fact that Industrial Hard Carbon reduces friction and is corrosion resistant, it also helps keep pumping machinery running longer.

Decrease Physical and Chemical Damage to Manufacturing Machinery

Not only is it important for textile machinery to be long-lasting for productivity, but it’s also important for the parts to not shred or damage the product in the manufacturing process. Industrial Hard Carbon diamond-like coating adheres to the surfaces of the parts of the textile machinery to resist wear and protect the hard surfaces, while delicately handling the product.

Hard Carbon Industrial Applications

Industrial Hard Carbon is a diamond-like thin film coating that offers flexibility in many different applications, allowing it to succeed where other films fail. IHC is commonly used in applications where high wear-resistance, high lubricity and high hardness are important, and the thin film can handle extreme conditions.

Our Solutions

Industrial Hard Carbon, has developed coating processes to allow for composite materials to receive performance-enhancing benefits under extreme conditions.  We strive to reduce weight, whilst increasing the durability of parts in high-temperature environments. Our solutions are applied by our highly skilled team of professionals, who control every detail of the coating process, from the substrate to the surface, as well as our state-of-the-art vacuum chambers.

Coating Product Lines

Carbon Raptor® by IHC allows the engine, trans, and drivetrain to operate at their highest efficiency.
When ceramics and other carbon-based protective coatings can’t meet the challenge, the combined hardness, lubricity, and flexibility of Carbon Raptor by IC result in phenomenal wear resistance. This thin film can be applied evenly and thoroughly to both the most intricate and massive parts.

Coating for Extreme Conditions

Casidiam® by IHC is the latest addition to our DLC coatings portfolio. Casidiam’s® extremely hard base layer 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 along with sliding velocities are present.

Armor™ by IHC is an extremely hard yet ductile Chromium Nitride (CrN) coating with excellent abrasion, corrosion, and oxidation resistance. Armor™ ’s low intrinsic stress properties result in excellent adhesion to the substrate under the most demanding conditions and deliver long-lasting resistance to galling and fretting.
