Durable Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) Coatings

VaporTech VT Diamond coatings are diamond-like thin-film coatings applied either through a physical or chemical vapor deposition process. These coatings are often referred to as DLC coatings, but they can be customized in significant ways to maximize durability, reduce friction, or improve appearance. All VaporTech systems can be configured to apply both metal-based PVD finishes as well as DLC. Common VT Diamond applications include machine tooling, engine components, aviation, cutting tools, medical devices, and high-value consumer products.

Faster process, harder surfaces

VT Diamond coatings feature low friction, excellent wear resistance, and a dark gray to near-black color. The unique VaporTech plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition DLC process can coat complex geometries.
