DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER
Introduced at Armoloy of Illinois by the Armoloy Corporation in 1997, XADC® established a premium upgrade to the Armoloy TDC® coating with the addition of a synthetic diamond composite to the Armoloy TDC bath.
Like natural diamond, the co-deposited nano diamonds are excellent thermal conductors promoting lower running temperatures in high heat applications. Tests have shown XADC® coated parts to run nearly 20% cooler than parts coated with traditional Armoloy TDC®, further enhancing its wear properties.
With exceptional hardness and wear resistance, XADC® can be applied to nearly every common manufacturing steel in precision deposits as low as .000050″. Running an XADC®-coated part against an XADC®-coated part can result in coefficients of friction as low as .09, reducing wear, galling, and the need for excessive lubrication.
XADC® bonds absolutely with the base metal it is applied to, and will not chip, peel, or flake from the substrate. Highly corrosion resistant as well, XADC® rivals 440C stainless steel in its ability to withstand oxidation.
Though XADC® is an excellent candidate for all high-wear applications, it is especially well-suited to the Plastic Injection Molding industry, particularly where high-glass-fill resins are being formed.
