Creator of Composite Diamond Coating®
Surface Technology, Inc. is the creator and technical leader of CDC - Composite Diamond Coating®, an exceptionally engineered coating of electroless nickel with fine diamond. The synergy of these materials makes CDC an exceptionally hard and wear resistant coating. CDC conforms to even the most complex geometries and is an excellent replacement for chrome plating. STI makes CDC available via coating services from its production facility as well as chemical products sold directly, through a network of distributors, and by agreement with licensees worldwide.
To serve a broader range of customers’ needs, Surface Technology, Inc. has installed new vibratory polishing equipment. This capacity expands the range of surface finishes available on the Company's proprietary coatings. STI also offers glass bead blasting, abrasive blasting, deburring, and chemical polishing services.
When required, any of Surface Technology, Inc.’s coatings can be polished to provide an ultra smooth surface finish. Coatings that can be enhanced by this process include all varieties of electroless nickel and composite electroless nickel with fine particulate matter such as diamond (Composite Diamond Coating®™), silicon carbide (NiPLATE™ 700), PTFE (NiSLIP™ 500), boron nitride (NiSLIP™ 25), and others. While the as-coated surfaces of these coatings satisfy the majority of applications on which these coatings are used, there are some situations in which a polished surface improves the performance of the coating, or eliminates an initial break-in period.
Surface Technology, Inc. is a unique provider of electroless plating technology, as STI is both a plating shop as well as a supplier of chemical solutions to other shops and licensees. The synergy of these two facets of STI’s activities yields unsurpassed experience, quality, economy, and development capabilities.
