CERTESS®CARBON DCZ DLC Coating

Category: DLC Certess Coating

CERTESS®CARBON DCZ DLC Coating

Description

CERTESS® is a dense, metastable form of hydrogenated amorphous carbon (a-C:H) containing significant SP3 bonding. This process of bonding carbon and hydrogen confers valuable 'diamond-like' properties such as mechanical hardness, low friction, optical transparency and chemical inertness. CARBON DCZ CERTESS®CARBON DCZ also has an amorphous hydrogenated carbon (a-C:H) layer with an optimized metallic sublayer for extra-high load application.
