Carbodeons new NanoDiamond Fluoropolymer Coating Additive.jpg

 

Carbodeon has developed a new additive for fluoropolymer coatings, based on its uDiamond NanoDiamond technology. It targets solvent-based coatings used across multiple industries including automotive, aerospace, and industrial. The additive reportedly doubles the wear resistance of standard fluoropolymer coatings without making them abrasive, and maintains or improves the existing low friction properties. The new additive consists of diamond particles smaller than 10 nm in size, which are produced alongside Carbodeon’s existing uDiamond NanoDiamond products, but with a newly designed surface chemistry to suit fluoropolymer materials. The surface chemistry enables the particles to disperse into the coatings without becoming agglomerated, resulting in an extremely high diamond surface area. This enables the additive to work at very low concentrations, reducing the cost, and making NanoDiamond applicable to a far greater market spectrum, the company claims.
