Tough carbon film has the quite high hardness, which is the next hardest film to Diamond. This superior film property is obtained by a unique deposition process. We can improve the wear and friction of your parts.

Ultra high hardness: Vickers hardness 5000kg/mm2 (*1)
-> Wear resistance is quite high!

High thermal stability: 500 ºC (Oxygen-free atmosphere) (*2)
-> The hardness is held at high temperature!

Quite thin film thickness (below 0.5 micron) and low process temperature (below 100 ºC)
-> Keeping the dimension for precise parts!

*1: This hardness is 2 to 3 times higher than that of DLC (Diamond-like Carbon) film, and 5 times higher than that of Chromium plating.
*2: This thermal stability is twice higher than that of DLC films.
