CVD DLC Coating 

Coating Services

ACT provides a variety of advanced coating technologies including Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD). CVD DLC is a chemical process that produces a thin high-quality coating using gases like Acethylene (C2H2). The C2H2 dissociates within a plasma into Hydrogen (H2) and Carbon (C). The Carbon is then used to grow a Diamond-Like-Carbon (DLC) coating.
This CVD coating provides a new and unique application to surface areas. Not only can the coating be applied to internal surface areas, but it can also be applied to intricate or complex shapes. The CVD process allows for the coating of narrow passageways such as valves and filters. It will also cover all areas including threads and blind holes, as well as both internal and external components.
This uniform solid coating can be used on a wide variety of materials including metal, ceramics, glass, and metal alloys. The application is used in many different industries including:
Medical devices

Coating Advantages

Chemical Vapor Deposition can be used to produce high quality, high-performance solid materials.
Some of the benefits of applying this coatiang include
High thermal conductivity and heat transfer performance
Increased toughness and durability
Impact and crack resistance
Prevents oxidation
Resistant to wear
Resistant to abrasion and erosion
Resistant to aggressive and corrosive chemicals such as acids
Withstands harsh environments
Prevents fatigue
Extends the lifetime of the component, reducing down-time for repair

ACT is focused on a high-quality coating application to optimize the performance and efficiency of the component, allowing for increased uptime and profitability. The CVD coating provides greater protection to the component allowing it to withstand exposure to low and high temperatures as well as acting as a barrier to corrosion and wear. The extended tool life will allow you to spend less time and money on tool changes or repairs.

CVD coatings are known as being an environmentally friendly durable surface.
