Our carbon-based thin diamond-like film coatings make them durable, biocompatible, and safe for surgical instruments, dental tools, medical devices, and research equipment
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, lubricity, and hardness represent important factors; the thin film can handle extreme conditions.
Industrial Hard Carbon has developed coating processes that allow composite materials to receive performance-enhancing benefits under extreme conditions. We strive to reduce weight while increasing the durability of parts in high-temperature environments. Our solutions are applied by a highly-skilled team of professionals, who control every detail of the coating process, from the substrate to the surface, and our state-of-the-art vacuum chambers.
Possessing a deep black color, DiaMed® is an amorphous matrix created from layers of nano-crystalline diamond and nano-crystalline silicon carbide. This unique combination provides Industrial Hard Carbon with its various properties and sets it apart from other DLC coatings on the market.
DiaMed conforms to substrates, becoming evenly deposited over all surfaces of a part or product.
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 IHC result in phenomenal wear resistance. This thin film can be applied evenly and thoroughly to both the most intricate and massive parts.
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. The low intrinsic stress properties of Armor™ result in excellent adhesion to the substrate under the most demanding conditions and deliver long-lasting resistance to galling and fretting.
