DLC coatings exhibit notable hardness, providing enhanced resistance to wear and abrasion. This is particularly advantageous for firearm components subjected to friction and repeated mechanical stress. Our industry-leading DLC coating has a hardness range of 1700 - 2300 HV.
DLC coatings also exhibit good resistance to corrosion, protecting firearm components from environmental factors such as moisture and oxidation. This results in a longer-lasting, lower-maintenance, better-performing firearm.
The inclusion of hydrogen contributes to lower coefficients of friction, reducing wear on the coated components. Low friction is essential for firearm components that undergo sliding or reciprocating movements. DLC's low friction combined with increased hardness means less wear.
