CVD Diamond (Polycrystalline)
What is CVD Diamond?
CVD (Chemical Vapour Deposition) is the process by which CVD Diamond material is produced. CVD Diamond is grown either on the surface of a material as a coating or as a freestanding thick film wafer. These two types are often referred to as thin film or thick film diamond. The types of diamond produced also vary in type and quality depending on their use. CVD Diamond has no binder which is why this diamond has such a superior performance in tool life over PCD for example.
With diamond being unique in hardness and thermal conductivity, the development of CVD Diamond has opened up new uses within new industries.
