UltraC Diamond™ coating is an ultrahard, extremely smooth, highly lubricious, diamond-like carbon (DLC) coating that is ideal for plastic injection mold components. UltraC Diamond will substantially enhance the durability of mold components, reduce friction, increase mold productivity, and reduce corrosion. The coating is deposited using a low-temperature (<150°C) proprietary Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition (PECVD) process and can be uniformly deposited over large areas, on virtually all vacuum compatible substrates, including polymers, and is very conformal to the surface features.
The UltraC Diamond coating can be applied to existing tool designs without the need for design changes and modifications. Entegris can also refurbish DLC coated parts, lowering the Cost of Ownership (CoO) while maximizing the life of these high value critical components.
UltraC-HT is an innovative, multi-layer, fully dense coating based on our UltraC hard carbon coating technology. This mono-dimensionally modulated (MDM)coating system, consisting of individual layers of the two materials differing in elastic modulus, has high strength, toughness and excellent resistance to erosion and wear.
The newest coating material innovation is UltraC-L, a “Lubricious” DLC grade modified for additional polymer release. UltraC-L solves part sticking problems with even the stickier polymers like polypropylene while maintaining low friction, low wear, eliminating galling and corrosion. Core pins, cavities and die pins are examples of applications where UltraC-L can reduce polymer buildup, eliminate part sticking and improve productivity, utility and quality.
