  3. 3. Traditional Methods of Surface Treatment Sulzer Metco Electrolysis Nickel Teflon Composite • Excellent Lubricity (20 - 25% Teflon in deposit) • Excellent release properties • Lowest coefficient of friction • Hardness: 62 Rc • Weak adhesion to the surface Chrome Plating • Finishing necessary on wear parts to eliminate chrome nodules. • For optimized frictional and lubricating properties surface finish must be taken below 15 micro inches Rp 400 X • Hardness: 68 Rc • Edge build up a problem Dicronite® Dry Lube • deposition of 0.000020 inch (0.5 microns) “maximum” • Not a line-of-sight process • only corrosion hindering • Composition - modified (WS2) Tungsten Disulfide in lamellar form. • Hardness - 1.0 - 1.5 Moh’s scale. • Co-efficient of Friction - 0.030 inclined plane method, against itself. | slide 2
  4. 4. DLC Coatings Sulzer Metco  Hard amorphous carbon thin film  very hard DLC  electrically insulating  wear resistant  Comprises C, H  Carbon in sp3 bonding => "Diamond-like" properties  There are a few variants of DLC coatings  Engineered interface layer for low film stress a-C:H Hard amorphous carbon thin film  very hard   electrically insulating wear resistant Dylyn®  lower friction  low film stress Comprises C, H, Si, O  a-C:H ~ "Diamond-like" properties  a-Si:O ~ enhances high temperature stability Dylyn® is a family of coatings Low intrinsic stress a- C:H; a- Si:O This is a Sulzer exclusive coating - Several US patents issued | slide 3

  9. 9. Plasma Assisted Chemical Vapor Deposition Process Sulzer Metco Sulzer Deposition System Vacuum PumpSubstrates Reactive PlasmaGas Supplysuch as CH4 Plasma Generator Equipment designed & constructed by Sulzer Metco Plasma Assisted Chemical Vapor Deposition (PACVD) process In-situ substrate cleaning via plasma etching Substrate temperature does not exceed 220°C Maximum part dimensions must fit within a 32” diagonal, be less than 12” in height and weigh less than 100Kg | slide 8

Coating Penetration in Close Spaces Sulzer Metco PACVD coating process is DLC Coating non-line of sight Shadowing occurs in holes or + + + + + + + + + + + + thin slots + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + During the process there is a + + + + + + + + + + + + + + relative gas ion density. + + + As the gas ions travels into the + + X + + restricted pathway; the + + charged part walls attracts the + + + oppositely charged gas ions + forming the coating. + + (-) As the gas ions go deeper into + the restricted pathway, there Taper + are less available until no coating is formed. + This reduction of coating is called Shadowing and the X coating forms only as deep as the width of the opening of the restricted pathway. | slide 9
  11. 11. Sulzer Stripping Process Sulzer MetcoStripped Masked Steel Sample Stripped 2 Ra Away from edge As Coated 2.5 Ra 3 Ra Near Edge Sulzer uses an Reactive Ion Etching process to decoat diamond-like and other carbon based coating types Stripped finish on 8620 steel typically changes about 1 to 2 Ra This process can be used on titanium, beryllium copper and aluminum parts in addition to steels and ceramics Note: Chrome plated parts and small geometries may not be advisable to strip. | slide 10
  12. 12. Diamond-Like Carbon Coatings (DLC) Sulzer Metco Characteristics Multi-Layer Coating All DLC coating have an adhesion layer Adhesion layer influences important coating properties Dylyn®, Me-Dylyn® or DLC Amount of hydrogen controls the hardness Ti or Dylyn® Adhesion Layer Multi-layer structures  DLN interlayer acts as buffer layer, reducing stress. Dylyn®, Me-Dylyn® or DLC  Allows for thicker total coating Ti or Dylyn® Adhesion Layer  Thicker coating  Longer wear life Substrate  Multilayer coatings resist Hertzian stresses due to their higher modulus of elasticity Standard Coating Stress Fracture Dylyn®, Me-Dylyn® or DLC Ti or Dylyn® Adhesion Layer Substrate Single Layer Mulit-layer | slide 11

  18. 18. Summary Sulzer MetcoDylyn®/DLC is able to offer a wide variety ofproperties with only ONE coating:• lowest available coefficient of friction…• …which is maintained by the high hardness• no surface roughness changes … that could influence galling and release properties• 100% corrosion protection• Coating temperature below 200°C• Removable!!• Biocompatible | slide 17
  19. 19. General Application Guidelines for Diamond-Like Coating Sulzer MetcoFor molding surfaces: Use the Dylyn® family of coatingsFor sliding surfaces: Use the DLC family of coatingsBoth coatings can work for molding or sliding applications, but we typically look at the primary need to determine which coating is the primary choiceThere are multiple recipes available and if the first coating recipe did not fully satisfy; we can determine by analyzing the results what the optimum coating recipe should be | slide 18
