CERTESS®CARBON TC 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. CERTESS®CARBON TC also has an amourphous carbon (t-aC) layer with an optimized metallic sublayer for extra-high load application to limit tribo-corrosion risks.
