Ionbond will present its Tribobond hydrogen-free DLC coating for high temperature applications.
Tribobond™ 48 ta-C is Ionbond’s hydrogen-free DLC coating with an increased temperature resistance of up to 400°C compared to 250°C for hydrogenated DLC coatings.
Typical applications include high-loaded mechanical components, which further benefit from the increased wear resistance and the reduced coefficient of friction of the coating.
The coating also exhibits an improved wettability with oils, gasoline and diesel fuels. Tribobond™ 48 ta-C has been thoroughly tested on valve trains, such as tappets, and crank train components, for example piston pins and rings as well as injection systems and pumps, where it has shown to significantly improve the robustness and to increase the lifetime of the parts involved.
Ionbond provides thin-film coating services and equipment and operates 40 coating centers in 18 countries. Its coatings are used to improve durability, quality, functionality, efficiency and aesthetics of tools and components.
