Diamond Coatings have over 15 years’ experience in the wet spraying of both conductive and non-conductive paints and materials, having undertaken non-conductive and conductive spraying for the military, aerospace and automotive industries, supplying well in access of 3 million parts of all shapes and sizes.
Although Diamond Coatings’ core business is established around ITO (Indium Tin Oxide) sputtering, continual research and development of new conductive paints/materials and implementation of that research into the production process of conductive paint spray allowed us to grow into a variety of industries.
Combining extensive experience of conductive paints/materials with significant technical knowledge, Diamond Coatings have formulated many custom conductive paint sprays. These paints are optimised to prevent cross-contamination within materials and rigorously tested – ensuring no rusting and fretting corrosion – over long-term periods.
Formulating their own, custom conductive paints enabled Diamond Coatings to ensure their solutions’ longevity, giving customers peace of mind concerning the functionality of components, which will withstand the tests of time under varying conditions.
Diamond Coatings boast years of first-hand experience in the wet spraying of various materials including, for instance, carbon, copper, nickel and silver, as well as simple ordinary paints required purely to provide cosmetic finishes.
The coating itself is a paint filled with conductive particles to provide a thin, but highly conductive layer. There are a number of different paint options, but it is common to use a Silver or Silver-coated Copper filler. These provide the best conductivity at the thinnest applications. At Diamond Coatings we use a wet-spray process to apply conductive paint.
The distinct advantage of conductive coating is that a metal enclosure is not needed; saving on weight and the associated costs of metal enclosures.
Conductive coatings exhibit excellent adhesion and can be applied to most plastics (including ABS, PC, PBT) and with the use of specialised adhesion promoters even low surface-energy materials like Polypropylene can be coated with ease.
Diamond Coatings have vast experience in spraying various materials such as;
- Ordinary paints, for a cosmetic finish.
With the ability to customise and develop their own formulated paints, Diamond Coatings can work closely with the customer to introduce any sprayable material for their specific requirements.
Particularly with a sprayed material, it is essential that all aspects of adhesion, deposition and conductivity be considered when selecting the most suitable material for any wet spraying solution.
Diamond Coatings paints have been rigorously tested for EMC/ESD compliance, conforming with great ease.
Additionally Diamond Coatings have seen some of their conductive paint and coating materials certified and approved by the Ministry of Defence.
As well as such approvals, Diamond’s formulated conductive materials act as an essential feature to various high profile projects and demanding applications.
