DLC is the perfect match for biomedical applications

Outstanding tribological properties and well tolerated by the body

In the field of medical technology, new methods are constantly being researched to ensure better prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Due to its superior tribological and mechanical properties with corrosion resistance, bio-compatibility, and hemocompatibility, diamond-like carbon (DLC) has emerged as a promising material for biomedical applications. Our CoolDiamond DLC® coating technology opens up new possibilities in the life science and healthcare industries.

Amorphous Diamond offers manufacturers of medical devices and equipment the benefits of bio-compatibility, chemical inertness, and hermetic barrier. Applications include implantable joints, catheters, surgical implants, and medical instrumentation.

Examples of applications:

  • Stainless stents
  • Orthopedic components
  • Hip and knee joints


Mission critical parts and components perform at their maximum when coated with CoolDiamond DLC®. CoolDiamond DLC® coating is the best solution for any application where a protection from high velocity airborne particles, seawater, engine fuel and oils, high humidity etc. is needed.


CoolDiamond DLC® offers an excellent surface protection combined with excellent infrared transmittance. CoolDiamond DLC® coating is also the best coating on the market for low-light applications such as night-vision goggles, sensors or other IR. 


CoolDiamond DLC® is adapted for the toughest conditions and it is the logical choice for working in space conditions. In partnership with Defence SA, we are taking part in the South Australian Space Capability Directory . This directory provides a clear view of South Australia’s space economy & opportunities.
