uDiamond® Plating Additive
Introducing uDiamond® Plating Additive for Electroless Nickel - the first ever custom designed NanoDiamond dispersion for electroless plating.
Breakthrough in Wear Resistance
Introducing uDiamond® Plating Additive for Electroless Nickel – the first ever custom designed NanoDiamond dispersion for electroless plating.
Carbodeon's uDiamond® plating additive addresses these needs:
- Wear Resistance: + 200%
- No reduction in corrosion performance
- Maintained or reduced friction
- Hardness: Small increase
- Direct addition to plating solution with no sonication required
How Does uDiamond® Enhancement Work?
The 4-6 nm NanoDiamond particles disperse throughout the plating electrolyte:
- uDiamond® particles control the growth of the plating microstructure – reducing the grain size at nano scale, improving its strength and eliminating porosity.
- uDiamond® particles reinforce the plated material by controlling dislocation movement under stress.
- uDiamond® particles present hard wearing, low friction surfaces at the operating face.
