Engine components

Ionbond’s carbon-based Tribobond™ 40 series DLC coatings applied in the valve train or crank train area reduce frictional losses in lubricated operations by up to 40%. The excellent dry lubrication properties also compensate for the reduced lubrication until the oil film has reached its full strength and allow for frequent Start-Stops without additional wear.

Tribobond™ 40 series DLC coatings support heavily loaded and stressed components by reducing friction and wear. This allows for reducing the physical size of the component and bush-less assemblies and material combinations that would otherwise not be possible. The resulting savings in both material and assembly cost outweigh the cost for coating.
