Diamondblack™ ADLC and Decobond™ decorative watch coatings

Ionbond offers coating services for watches from its luxury goods coating center in the north-west of Switzerland, close to the heart of the Swiss watch making industry. The service includes the Diamondblack™ series of PACVD, DLC and ADLC (diamond like carbon) coatings as well as selected and specially conditioned coatings of the Decobond™ series. This service is offered to watch producers and their suppliers.

The dedicated coating center is equipped with multiple coating systems, the latest technology cleaning lines and a class 100000 clean room to handle medium to high volumes. All process steps after unpacking are performed in the clean room area in order to avoid dust contamination and coating voids. A 100% incoming inspection of the parts is conducted in order to guarantee surface conditions suitable for coating. The same inspection procedure is carried out at the outgoing inspection to make sure that no defects pass.

Ionbond has developed a process that allows for removing the coating for re-coating in case the coating of an individual part does not conform to the stringent standards for cosmetical appearance or if it becomes defective after years of use and needs refurbishing.
