SUCASLIDE® - The modern friction-reducing DLC coating

Applications:

  • Forming and cutting tools for non-ferrous metals, in particular aluminum (e.g. IHU)
  • in case of injection moulds both for the mold surfaces and for sliders and ejectors (absolute dry running possible)
  • Combination with other PVD and CVD layers possible
  • Precision components, motor and gear parts, gears, storage and valve parts, sealing and guiding elements
  • Paper knives, industrial blades
  • Saw blades for composite materials
  • Components of food-, vacuum- and cooling technology (dry running)

Advantages:

  • Further significant improvement of the slide characteristics with respect to traditional PVD layers (also with minimal lubrication a significant improvement results) decrease of adhesion and both friction partners are protected.
  • Improvement of the run-in characteristics with tools and precision components
  • Improvement of the emergency running characteristics
  • Suited for low-tempered steels (case hardened, spring and bearing steels)
