Missing from Chem Show: DLC Technology

dlc-coating-industrial-hard-carbon.jpg2017 Chem Show attendees are going to get more than their fill’s worth of information to bring back to their companies. However, one industry changing technology that will not be broadcast at this trade show is DLC technology.

DLC, or diamond-like carbon coating, is an amorphous matrix of layers of nano-crystalline diamond and nano-crystalline silicon carbide. Its unique properties can only  be surpassed by pure diamond and it has a strong track record of performing better than any other thin film coating on the market.

By coating chemical production machinery is DLC, the production process is enhanced to run more efficiently with less unscheduled downtime, less product loss and less cleanup.

DLC has high lubricity, has high hardness, offers corrosion resistance, has an extreme wear rate, and operates at extreme temperatures. It protects the parts from corroding in processes such as pumping and mixing, and it protects machine parts from wear caused by high temperatures and aggressive formulations. Plus, it’s high lubricity enables a clean release from product molds, pins and associated parts resulting in less production rejection.

All in all, diamond-like carbon coatings are revolutionizing the chemical industry.
