Details:

Industrial Hard Carbon thin film coatings are characterized by extreme hardness, lubricity, high wear resistance, high corrosion resistance and a number of other useful qualities.

The films are deposited by a proprietary plasma-assisted chemical vapor deposition process. Far different from the diamond-like and carbide thin films familiar to many in the coating industry, IHC films are created from layers of nano-crystalline diamond and nano-crystalline silicon carbide in an amorphous matrix of both elements.

It is this unique combination of layers and phases of diamond and silicon carbide that give IHC films both their wide range of properties and extremes in those properties only surpassed by pure diamond.
