Ion implantation

This innovative surface treatment by ionisation can be cold-applied to all types of substrate and offers :

  • Surface hardness of 2 to 7 times initial hardness up to 10 µm
  • Better elasticity
  • Impossible to delaminate
  • Better resistance to substrate cracking
  • Very high resistance to corrosion
  • Improves friction coefficient
  • And of course, is environmentally friendly

Advantages

  • Hybrid layer : injected/spread
  • No heat constraints linked to the treatment
  • Increases hardness
  • Reduces friction from abrasive wear
  • Inhibits pitting
  • Improves the wettability when applied on polymers
  • Significant increase in superficial electrical conductivity (when applied on polymers)
  • Resistance to oxydisation
