Less than 1% Failure Rate
Our failure rate is one of the lowest in the industry. This means less rework, faster lead times, and no headaches. We define a failure as anything unacceptable to our clients. Rainbowing, delamination, void, deformation, and shadowing are a few of the failures we track and resolve.

If we detect a coating failure, we rework it at our cost.
high-volume dlc coating
High Volume
If you have high-volume parts that need a high-performance coating, we can handle it. We coat 10's of thousands of parts for clients each month. Not only do we coat high-volumes of parts, but we can also polish/blast, and clean those parts as well, all in-house.

Reach out to our Solutions Team about your high-volume project.
dlc coating on high-value parts
High Value
We take very seriously the protection and handling of high-value parts. While all parts are valuable, there are parts that are difficult, impossible, and/or extremely expensive to replace or repair. We work with you to develop prep, cleaning, handling, packaging, and shipping instructions ensuring that your parts arrive back to you in perfect condition.

What is RoHS?
RoHS stands for Restriction of Hazardous Substances. RoHS, also known as Directive 2002/95/EC, originated in the European Union and restricts the use of specific hazardous materials found in electrical and electronic products.

What are the restricted materials mandated under RoHS?
The substances banned under RoHS are lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (CrVI), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE), and four different phthalates (DEHP, BBP, BBP, DIBP).

Why is RoHS compliance important?
The restricted materials are hazardous to the environment and pollute landfills, and are dangerous in terms of occupational exposure during manufacturing and recycling.

REACH is a regulation of the European Union, adopted to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals, while enhancing the competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry. It also promotes alternative methods for the hazard assessment of substances in order to reduce the number of tests on animals.

In principle, REACH applies to all chemical substances; not only those used in industrial processes but also in our day-to-day lives, for example in cleaning products, paints as well as in articles such as clothes, furniture and electrical appliances. Therefore, the regulation has an impact on most companies across the EU.

REACH places the burden of proof on companies. To comply with the regulation, companies must identify and manage the risks linked to the substances they manufacture and market in the EU. They have to demonstrate to ECHA how the substance can be safely used, and they must communicate the risk management measures to the users.

If the risks cannot be managed, authorities can restrict the use of substances in different ways. In the long run, the most hazardous substances should be substituted with less dangerous ones.
