Sulzer: Enhanced Thin-Film Coatings Portfolio

The DLC activities of Bekaert have been acquired by Sulzer Metco, a leading global supplier of services and products for surface solutions, covering thermal-spray and thin-film coating technologies. The acquisition, which includes Bekaert’s diamond-like carbon (DLC) coatings and racing activities, will deliver significant technological benefits to Sulzer and Bekaert customers, as both companies have a strong presence in complementary markets and produce complementary technologies.

Bekaert DLC produces thin-film coatings, which combine very low frictional resistance and extreme hardness. The coatings are used to reduce wear and friction in a wide range of industrial applications, such as machine parts, automotive components, and moulds for plastics and metals. Bekaert DLC division will be integrated into Sulzer Metco’s existing thin-film coating activities, which focus on machining, forming, general automotive, racing, semiconductors and plastic-processing applications.

Product names will remain the same, e.g. Cavidur and Dylyn. The only change will be the switch in brand name from Bekaert to Sulzer.
