Here Are The Main Reasons To Choose Carbon Coatings
Carbon coatings are used in various industries, such as pharmaceuticals and medical devices, to protect metal parts from corrosion. In the most basic terms, a carbon coating can be considered a thin layer of electricity repellent material applied to another surface. At some point, the electricity will cause the carbon coatings to break down and create a trail of electricity that flows from one metal part to another. That’s not such a bad thing, though. This charge allows metal parts to transfer their electric charge or magnetism (and, in turn, their mass) from one location to another.
Good At Repelling Electricity
For the most part, most metals don’t repel electricity or keep it out in the same way that carbon protects it. To understand this, you must first consider that an electric charge is a push or a pull of energy – there’s no difference. This means when you apply an electric charge to metal, there are two things it can do: either attract or repel the charge.
Some elements repel an electric charge, meaning the charge won’t flow through them. These substances are called “dielectrics” and include some plastics, rubbers and ceramics. Others that don’t repel the charge are called “electro-conductors” and include metals such as aluminum, copper and silver. Finally, there are those in between – they don’t fully repel or attract the charge – referred to as “mechanical conductors. These include carbon, graphite, diamond and some plastics. Considering how carbon is the same as diamonds and graphite, it should be no surprise that carbon coatings are great at conducting electricity.
Consider the following list of industries that use these coatings: electronics, medical devices, automotive manufacturing and industrial machinery, just to name a few – but really, almost any industry that uses metal parts can benefit from using this coating technology. A good carbon coating will protect the surfaces it is applied to, improve a metal part’s efficiency, and even be used as a conductive layer. In some instances, a carbon coating is applied to produce a protective product that is both aesthetically pleasing and durable. These characteristics have earned this global technology acceptance.
In some cases, these coatings can be applied to various surfaces to improve the look or performance of the metal surfaces underneath. In other cases, there are simple cases in which the coating can simply be applied for aesthetic purposes. Additionally, most coatings have lower costs than the standard application of a metal part that is not protected by these properties.
For years, people have claimed that carbon was the greener alternative to steel and aluminum because it is made up of pure carbon – rather than a combination of several different elements – making it more sustainable over time.
As mentioned above, a carbon coating is often applied to a metal part because it conducts electricity and creates a conductive path between the two parts – you can apply it to almost any part and have it work for the purpose. Furthermore, the electric current created by these coatings is often very small – much smaller than that of other materials – reusing the same coating repeatedly will save you money.
Carbon coatings have been shown to last anywhere from 10 – 20 years, regardless of their specific purpose. This is because of the high-quality material applied to the metal surface. This material has been tested and proven extremely durable when a conductor comes into contact with it – as would be the case with any metal contact point. This means a carbon coating will be useful for many years – even if it is only applied so that it can conduct electricity.
Lastly, carbon coatings are often applied to a surface to improve its appearance and make the metal part underneath more attractive or functional. For example, you may want to improve the aesthetics of a metal part’s surface to look nicer on display for customers at your store. Or, you may want to improve a metal part’s performance so it can work more efficiently. Either way, a carbon coating would be useful to achieve these goals.
Corrosion results from an electric current that flows between two metal parts not protected by something like a carbon coating. Unfortunately, corrosion can cause metal parts to lose their properties and prevent them from functioning properly. This is why carbon coatings are useful in protecting metal parts from the effects of corrosion and helping them to last longer.
Easy To Apply
Applying a carbon coating is simple and follows a step-by-step process that has been proven effective for many years – regardless of the industry you’re working in. Furthermore, once it is applied, it is also easy to maintain.
A carbon coating will never degrade or oxidize like some other coatings or materials – which means that even if it isn’t currently used to conduct electricity, the properties on the surface will remain and protect the metal part underneath from damage. Finally, any part coated with this material will be functional and benefit the end user positively.
A carbon coating will protect from corrosion and other damaging elements long after it has been applied – whether or not it is used as a conductor for electricity. This means that you can use the coating as long as you need to to achieve your desired goal – even if its only job is to improve the aesthetics of your metal product.
Shock can be a problem in the industrial and automotive manufacturing industries, especially when you consider the vibration of metal parts when subjected to tough working conditions. A carbon coating can help provide protection against shocks caused by these vibrations – keeping your metal parts functioning properly and looking great over time.
No matter the industry you’re working in, there is a carbon coating that will help improve the look and performance of your metal product. In addition to these benefits and advantageous characteristics, conventional carbon black coating is also made up of high-quality materials that last almost indefinitely. As an added bonus, they are relatively inexpensive to apply and won’t cost you much money over time. Finally, they are easy to maintain and will serve your needs long after they have been applied.
