The Surface Engineers

General engineering

Modern designs that look for long lifetimes, no or limited servicing needs and high energy and cost efficiency require sophisticated approaches to the solution. Often the granted physical dimensions are limited, lubrication is difficult to maintain and the materials used are expensive.

Ionbond has developed the Tribobond™ series of low friction and wear resistant coatings that offer options in the design and material selection for mechanical components. The higher load bearing capacity of coatings compared to pure metallic surfaces allows for downsized components which reduce the dynamic mass. Coatings change the wear behavior of galling, fretting and erosion, they are chemically inert and most of them can be used in applications that call for food compatibility. Tribobond™ 40 series DLC coatings allow dry sliding and rolling motion and add a safety margin to the components for prolonged service intervals.
