Argor-Aljba’s two product lines are diamond like coatings (DLC) that are based on pure carbon. Due to their tetrahedral structure they acquire the properties of a diamond. The quota of the sp3-configured carbon lies around 80-95%, which is the reason for the high quota of diamond structure.
Furthermore, due to its procedure, Argor-Aljba’s coatings are completely free of hydrogen. The thereby obtained structure endows the coatings with the following properties:
Through their properties Argor-Aljba coatings clearly stand out compared to conventional coatings: considerably reduced friction and extreme hardness, the performance and life span of tools and components are increased by many times as well.
