PACVD & PVD & DLC protective coatings

Your production can be even better! It is essential to choose the right coating that will increase the efficiency of the tools, increase their durability and significantly extend their life.

Trust the specialists in this matter – get support from the technical advisors and technologists of EMTECH IPH GROUP. With over a decade of experience in the industry, they never give up on finding tailor-made solutions.


EMTECH IPH GROUP is a team of specialists and enthusiasts of technologies that improve production. They offer comprehensive services including preparation and regeneration of tools and improving their functionality using modern laser and dry ice cleaning technologies. Their offer also includes surface refining of tools and machine components with specialist protective coatings.

Methods of applying protective coatings

Increasing durability and extending tool life is an opportunity to increase the efficiency of your production department. Modern wear resistant coatings applied by means of technologically advanced methods are an effective solution: PACVD and PVD.


The protective coating technologies used differ primarily in their reaction with the chosen surface and the coating temperature. It is therefore necessary to adapt to the individual needs and requirements of customers. The most common problems occurring in production should be taken into account, but their final choice also depends on the technological data of the tool and its operating conditions. The material from which the component is made is also important, which is why specialists take the following into account before starting their work:

  • physical and chemical properties,
  • individual deformability,
  • resistance to high temperatures.

Methods of applying abrasion resistant protective coatings – basic characteristics

What are the differences between the most advanced methods of applying wear-resistant protective coatings? First of all, you should know that:

  • PACVD is a plasma-assisted chemical vapor deposition – the entire process is carried out at 450-550°C,
  • PVD is a physical vapor deposition that can take place at much lower temperatures ranging from 180 to 550°C.


Modern protective coatings offered by the specialists of EMTECH IPH GROUP are characterized by chemical indifference and high resistance to wear thanks to low friction coefficient. Their thickness varies from 0.5 µm to 4 µm – an ultra-thin layer protecting against negative external influences. Our employees make sure that the edges of the tools are consistently sharp and all other surfaces remain in their original condition.

Specialty protective coatings – application

PACVD and PVD protective coatings are an effective solution for various industries. They are used in food production, foundries, pressing plants and companies working with various types of plastics: plastic, glass or rubber. They are also used in tool shops for the production and regeneration of tools, machines and necessary components.


Achieving optimum efficiency in the use of protective coatings is the main goal of the EMTECH IPH GROUP and its customers. Proper modification and correct selection of the application method and type of coating is essential to improve production efficiency and achieve economic benefits. They increase the durability of selected tools and their components, clearly extending their life without the need for regular repairs.

Benefits of protective coatings

By using EMTECH IPH protective coatings, users can enjoy a refined surface of tools and components. What benefits does this bring to production?

  • Improved production efficiency: the surface of the tools is noticeably harder, which makes them more resistant to abrasion and corrosion. It is also possible to increase cutting parameters and machining efficiency. You don’t need frequent changes of parts and tools, so there is no production downtime.
  • Improved production quality: tools are more precise and can also process material with lower parameters. The protection keeps them from sticking to it. If some coatings are applied, they may also look better.
  • Reduced production costs: the use of protective coatings means increased tool life – the slower they wear, the longer they last.
