Diamond Innovations, formerly known as GE Superabrasives, provides Composite Diamond Coatings (CDC, a patented process of Surface Technology, Inc., Trenton, N.J.) that offer a practical and economical opportunity to provide the unique properties of diamond to the surface of wear parts and systems. Any part that is exposed to the harmful and costly effects of various wear modes may benefit from this unique protective coating technology. The CDC coating is a hard metal alloy with fine particles of Man Made(TM) diamond dispersed throughout the metal matrix. Tightly controlled diamond characteristics, such as purity and tightly controlled sizes and shapes, significantly enhance the quality of CDC. Outstanding wear life and enhanced reliability guarantee a significantly extended use of the CDC coated parts.
