Intlvac Thin Film to Expand its Diamond Like Carbon Operations

"Intlvac has been in the Diamond Like Carbon (DLC) business for two decades and has been making substantial investments in our internal DLC product and service capabilities over the years. What we are seeing now is a massive increase in demand for our DLC services in the automotive, aerospace and defense industries. To help meet that demand over the next five years we will expand our DLC operations in every aspect from R&D to product development to sales and distribution," outlined Intlvac Thin Film Chief Executive Officer, Dino Delgiannis.

For twenty years, Intlvac Thin Film has been at the forefront of manufacturing DLC systems for coating Silicon and Germanium optics for the Medium Wavelength Infrared (MWIR) and Long Wavelength Infrared (LWIR). Diamond Like Carbon coating benefits include wear and abrasion resistance, reduced friction, increased hardness and corrosion resistance.

"Our Diamond Like Carbon capabilities include single layer anti-reflection coatings on glasses, black DLC for suppression of light in the visible spectra, thick DLC for Far Infrared (IR) applications, durable Hydrophobic DLC coatings that meet spectral requirements in the MWIR and LWIR, tunable hardness for enhanced protection and stress relief using a post coating process," explained Mr. Deligiannis.

"Our current Diamond Like Carbon capabilities and our Research and Development efforts are perfectly aligned with the needs of the automotive, aerospace and defense industries. We will be expanding our team in Halton Hills to help meet demand and to execute our growth plans for the DLC markets," added Mr. Deligiannis.

Intlvac Thin Film will be exhibiting at booth 1111 in Rochester, New York at SPIE Optifab on October 17th until October 19th, 2023. To arrange a meeting or for product information or solutions please contact sales@intlvac.com
