Advanced Refractory Technologies (ART) researchers have developed a new coating technology they say will "revolutionize the way materials designers and parts fabricators view coatings and materials surfaces." The coatings, called DYLYNR, are said to provide several properties at once--the slipperiness of Teflon(reg), the hardness of diamond, and the adhesion of "super-glue," as well as optical, electrical, and corrosion-resistant properties. The diamond-like Nanocomposite coating consists of two atomic-level networks, one based on carbon and one based on silicon. The two-network system provides a low-friction, highly adherent coating that can be tailored by the specific chemistry or how the coating is applied, according to Donald J. Bray, director of business development at ART. Applications for the coating include: microelectronics, communications systems, automotive components, personal-care products, business machines, chemical processing equipment, and bearings.
