Duralar– An Unprecedented Advance in Hard Coating Technology
Duralar represents an entirely new class of hard coatings that is unprecedented in the industry. It provides new levels of hardness and wear resistance as well as corrosion and erosion resistance. This remarkable new technology creates a whole new market niche and fills the void between traditional technical thin film coatings and the hard chrome plating and alternative markets. Duralar coating offers important new advantages both in performance and price; it may be applied rapidly and it is environmentally friendly!
Metal and diamonds — a unique technology
Duralar is a proprietary and uniquely structured new nanocomposite coating that blends metal and diamond-based components to achieve exceptional hardness, toughness, strength and a broad range of performance qualities. It is comprised of multiple layers that can be configured in different ways to address different applications. The multiple layers are also effective for eliminating microcracks in the coating and blocking other problems like corrosion.
Because Duralar is not a sprayed coating it does not have the limitations that are usually associated with line-of-sight application. Instead, Duralar is highly conformal and uniform, which makes it well suited to coating three-dimensional features. It gives very consistent coverage, even on screw threads and intricately shaped features which can be challenging for other coating methods.
Also, Duralar does not require extremely high deposition temperatures, so it does not alter the morphology of substrates and works well on a broad range of substrate materials. At present Duralar technology is primarily designed to coat conductive substrates; in the future it may also be used on plastics and other materials.
The performance of Duralar coating now opens new possibilities for a spectrum of industries and applications. The coating’s hardness, toughness, corrosion and erosion resistance and other advanced features combined with its speed and ease of application now enable its use in applications that previously were not technically or economically feasible. Explore the website and you will see why Duralar is called the most advanced hard metal coating technology on the planet.
