Diesel Engine Builds & Rebuilds

Keep Machinery Running Longer

Industrial Hard Carbon’s thin film help diesel engines run longer thanks to the wear resistance, high hardness, and lubricity of their diamond-like coating, making engines more efficient and lowering friction and the heat caused by friction.

Performance Diesel Racing

Are you ready to outperform the competition?

Winning in motorsports involves several factors: a talented driver, a strong crew, robust equipment, and excellence in the engineering behind that equipment. We currently support highly recognized teams & companies in the industry, from Porsche, F1, NASCAR, Truck Series, Sprint Cars, and Motocross to performance diesel racing. We can help you get the winning edge.

Marine Diesel Protection

Protection from Corrosion and Elevated Pressures

Marine machinery must be corrosion-resistant in the presence of salt water and mud to withstand corrosion. Industrial Hard Carbon protects from corrosion and is highly wear-resistant and extremely hard, which reduces friction and resists corrosion to help keep marine machinery running longer.

Industrial Hard Carbon a key not only to winning but making your parts last.

Kyle BatesElite Motorsports

Since 2014 Industrial Hard Carbon has supplied all of the Elite Motorsports Team with the best coatings available. The entire IHC team insures we get properly engineered coatings for each project. From engine parts to race car components, IHC delivers!

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.

Stacey StoneKing Engine Bearings

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.
