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 production process allowed us to grow into a variety of industries.
Over the last 15 years, Diamond Coatings have, in addition to their vast vacuum coatings experience accumulated an abundance of experience in the wet spraying of non-conductive and conductive paints & materials.
Conductive Paints and Wet Spraying
Sprayed conductive paints/materials are frequently sufficient options for varying applications. Considering all aspects of conductivity, deposition and adhesion when choosing the most suitable materials for wet spraying solutions is, however, essential.
Combining extensive experience of conductive paints/materials with significant technical knowledge, Diamond Coatings have formulated many custom conductive paints. 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.
Formulation and Development of Customized Conductive Paints
Their ability to formulate and develop their own customized conductive paints allowed Diamond Coatings to see some of their innovative new conductive paints and coating materials obtain Ministry of Defence certification and approval. In addition to these approvals, Diamond Coatings’ conductive paints/materials are an essential feature of a variety of demanding applications and high profile projects.
Having wet sprayed for many years, Diamond Coatings have competently and comfortably sprayed and supplied over 3 million products to automotive and aerospace industries and the military and have the facilities and capability to wet spray both small and large parts.
Harris Kyriacou, Manager of Diamond Coatings’ Automotive Business Unit, stated:
“Wet spraying is a particularly challenging and complex production process, because in many cases the conductive paint is an essential feature to the function of the customer’s product.
With wet spraying, there are so many independent variables to be factored in and of course, there is a high natural wastage related to this process, but we have enhanced our robust production system, to remove all variables and reduce the wastage cost, which enables us to offer our customers an extremely competitive price for their wet spraying requirements.
As a company, we always look at the ‘added value’ aspects of any project and try to offer our customers an all-in-one, in house solution, which is why we have a designated spray department, which runs across 3 shifts and sprays on a daily basis, with the capacity to develop this vastly.
We focus on really understanding the customers’ requirements for their product and thereafter, custom design and build our own paints and tooling, which enables us to manufacture a repeatable process, from the simplest design to the more intricate, whilst ensuring we maintain the highest of quality standards.
Since 2007, we have sprayed parts for various manufacturers in the automotive industry, including one of the world’s leading and most recognized luxury car manufacturers and consistency is essential in the supply to the automotive industry. We currently spray in the region of 1 million parts per year for this manufacturer and have recently had our involvement in this project extended till at least 2025. With the forecasted figures, we anticipate this annual wet spraying figure to increase drastically year on year”.
