Anti-wear and anti-friction WC/C coating for components

CarbonLafer is a Tungsten carbide based multi-layered amorphous WC/C coating, suitable for any applications where it is necessary to reduce friction between mechanical components and where the objective is to reduce the use of lubricants.
Its main characteristic is that it has an extremely low friction coefficient, strong adhesion and sufficient hardness to support important mechanical duties.
Suitable for use on medical instruments in accordance with ISO 10993-5:2009 norm, CarbonLafer is also suitable for contact with food as per REG EU 1935/2004.

 

Principal applications

  • engine gears and gear cutting
  • components for mechanical pumps
  • ball bearing rings, worms
  • medical instruments
  • sliding guides for molds to reduce friction and risk of sticking
