Pedrotti Hard coatings cover standard components, lower wear
The material is said to be widely used in the plastics processing industry.
Pedrotti has announced that it is now offering a “diamond-like carbon” for its standard components.
The coating is a Pa-CVD carbon-based substance widely used in the plastic moulding industry, according to the supplier. The coating hardness is said to reach 2,500HV, which allows the reduction of friction and improves the sliding performances of steel parts without increasing wear.
The coatings have a maximum operating temperature of 300 C, Pedrotti said.
