CVD Diamond

Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) diamond is manufactured by means of a diamond synthesis technology in which a low pressure reactor is used to combine a thermal or plasma activating agent with a gas-phase carbon to produce a chemical reaction which results in polycrystalline diamond crystal growth or deposition upon a solid surface or substrate.

Although not a new concept (CVD diamond synthesis was first introduced by scientists over 50 years ago) it is only within the last decade that CVD diamond synthesis has shown its potential to become a commercially and economically viable alternative to natural diamond in the workplace, able to be grown in a controlled environment to desired thicknesses of up to ~2mm. CVD diamond wafers can also be cut into a variety of shapes and polished to achieve mirror-like finishes if required.

  • Thermal Grade CVD Diamond – High hardness & thermal conductivity (>12W/cmK).
    • Heat Spreader
    • IC (Integrated Circuit)
    • LD (Laser Diode)
    • LDA (Laser Diode Array) for thermal management
  • Mechanical Grade CVD Diamond – High hardness, good tensile strength & fracture toughness.
    • Dressing Tools – Single & multipoint dressers; grinding wheel dressers.
    • Cutting Tools - Surgical knives; cutting tool inserts; drill bits; reamers etc.
    • Wear Resistant Coatings – Non-ferrous, plastic and composite materials.
    • Wire Dies – Wire die blanks for hard metal wire e.g. tungsten, molybdenum & stainless steel.

Didco Synthetic Diamond Grits Overview

High flexibility in selection of bond matrix Coatings can protect diamond grit from aggressive metal bonding powders such as chromium, iron and tungsten, which allow the tool manufacturer more flexibility in selection of the bond matrix. Improved cutting efficiency The most important factor affecting the cutting efficiency of tools is the particle protrusion height in the bond matrix.


Didco Thermally Stable Polycrystalline - TSP Diamond Inserts

Thermally Stable Polycrystalline diamond can be manufactured into a variety of sizes and shapes that can be inserted into cutting tools, drilling bits, reamers, wire drawing dies, and other wear-resistant components. The results obtained in drilling medium to hard rocks and non-uniform abrasive formations are much better than those obtained with drill bits impregnated or surface-set with single, natural diamond crystals.


PCD Tool Blanks | High Performance Polycrystalline Diamond Composite

DIDCO Polycrystalline Diamond Composite is manufactured using top quality synthetic diamond grit, sintered together by way of extremely high temperature and pressure to create a polycrystalline diamond layer. As more applications evolve requiring the use of polycrystalline diamond products, more industries will come to realize the gains and benefits these products have to offer.
