Notes

2. “Diamond may be considered to be a very unique material. It has relatively high hardness, high thermal conductivity, high electric resistivity, a low coefficient of friction and is substantially inert to attacks from most chemicals. For tribological applications, diamond may be considered an excellent material to inhibit erosion, abrasion and sliding wear.”

Methods of forming nanocomposites containing nanodiamond particles by vapor deposition 

Diamond may be considered to be a very unique material. It has relatively high hardness, high thermal conductivity, high electric resistivity, a low coefficient of friction and is substantially inert to attacks from most chemicals. For tribological applications, diamond may be considered an excellent material to inhibit erosion, abrasion and sliding wear. Natural diamond may be considered too expensive and too small in size to protect industrial component surfaces. Similarly, synthetic diamond, which may be used in polishing, grinding and cutting, particularly in machining, mining or oil/natural gas exploration applications, may be difficult to use as a protective coating on components to inhibit erosion, abrasion, wear and corrosion.

Wei, Rincon and Coulter of  Southwest Research Institute, Texas, coated  a substrate with a formulation containing nanodiamond powder. This suspension is subject to a plasma forming discharge with the discharge bombarding a target surface.  The result is a tough coating containing 1 to 100 nm diamond particles,  (RDC 8/5/2013)
