>> Duralar TECHNOLOGIES IS NOW armorlube, llc.
ArmorLube is a next generation DLC coating that increases component performance, reliability and durability in the most challenging conditions.
We provide internal and external coating services for manufacturers who want the benefits of ArmorLube but have limited volume.
ArmorLube’s patented Hollow Cathode technology is unique because it creates an extremely dense plasma to coat the parts. This allows for faster deposition times and thicker coatings that can be applied to complex geometries and be tuned to meet specific application performance requirements. This PECVD coating process delivers benefits in three key areas:
ArmorLube’s coefficient of friction is less than 0.1 and is ideal for applications that will have two surfaces sliding against each other. Additionally, the lubricious qualities can be tuned to match the needs of the application providing greater flexibility for manufacturers to meet their performance goals.
ArmorLube can be applied quickly – easily reaching 15 microns if desired. With deposition rates approaching .5 microns a minute, ArmorLube’s patented Hollow Cathode technology process delivers some of the fastest PECVD coating deposition rates on the market today.
All of the hardness and lubrication in the world won’t matter if the coating doesn’t adhere to the substrate. ArmorLube’s ability to coat complex 3D parts allows for greater adhesion to the substrate which enhances wear and lubrication performance.
ArmorLube’s systems team can help you design a coating recipe and manufacturing solution tailored to meet your specific product coating and performance goals. Our system engineers will meet with you to understand your goals, test and validate recipes and then deliver a complete cost analysis to help support your decision making process.
