Tribobond™ coatings for gearbox components

High torque and velocity combined with low lubrication can destroy gears by pitting and scuffing and, as a result, end a race instantly. Tribobond™ 40 series DLC coatings enhance the fatigue resistance and, in combination with a superfinish treatment, offer more power output.

The low friction properties of Tribobond™ DLC coatings ease shifting and enable a reduced oil level in the gearbox, which increases the efficiency since the gears do not have to move the full amount of lubricant.

The enhanced load carrying capacity of a DLC coated gear enables a reduced mechanical dimensioning for the same power density or increases the safety margin on existing designs.
