Carbodeon EN-PTFE Nanodiamond Composite Coating

Carbodean has developed an electroless nickel, PTFE and nanodiamond composite coating which improves abrasive wear resistance and has a 30% better Taber Wear Index.

New Generation Carbodeon Nano Diamond Coatings 5954f4a6cb32c

Nanodiamond material specialist Carbodeon of Finland has worked with metal finishing specialist CCT Plating of Germany to develop an electroless nickel, PTFE and nanodiamond composite coating.

  • Electroless nickel-PTFE (EN-PTFE) coatings provide excellent anti-adhesive and low friction properties
  • Combining NanoDiamond particles with EN-PTFE coating improves abrasive wear resistance without compromising sliding or release properties  
  • Nanodiamond material consists of small, spherical diamond nanoparticles which are specially treated to make them disperse in coating liquids and carry a positive electrical charge on their surfaces
  • Features Taber Wear Index 30% better than equivalent EN-PTFE coatings
  • Can be heat treated, bringing Taber Wear Index down to 14 or lower
  • Coefficient of friction matches existing EN-PTFE systems – less than 0.2 when measured against steel counterparts
  • No increase in wear of counterpart
  • Process contains no hexavalent chromium, making it environmentally friendly and free of complex regulations
  • Low diamond content makes affordable and easy to apply
  • Applications include automotive components including engine parts, chassis parts and body mechanisms; plastics forming molds including complex structures, moving cores and slides; military applications requiring hard wearing and lubricant-free operations
