Wear refers to continuous material loss from the surface of a solid body, caused by the mechanical, thermal or chemical impact of a solid, liquid or gaseous contacting body. It therefore makes sense to use the hardest material possible for components prone to wear: diamond.

But it is not hardness alone that is the key factor: diamond also features good frictional and gliding properties and can be produced with excellent surface qualities. This opens up the opportunity for new applications and process optimizations, because in a diamond version your component will feel virtually no contact.

Processing diamond as a construction material for high-precision wear protection components calls for state-of-the-art production technologies and many years of experience: DR. KAISER has both.
