Cutting Edge Nanotechnology Extends Product Lifetime

Sustainability has become a priority to the defense industry as users seek improvements in the durability of their equipment.  Since 2010, Ibis Tek has offered an exclusive Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating to provide a 20X improvement to the scratch and sand resistance of glass used in transparent armor.

Using state-of-the-art vacuum chambers, nanoscale films of DLC can be deposited on a variety of substrates at room temperature. Ibis Tek has successfully applied DLC coatings to transparent armor and continues to develop formulations for glasses, plastics, and metal products that experience similar wear.  Ibis Tek works closely with customers to apply this coating to a variety of products.
