Stripping of DLC Coatings


Hello !

Does anyone know of any stripping method for DLC - coatings, is it possible to burn it off? Thanks Caroline

DLC being a type of carbon, it is as impervious to chemical reaction as any other carbon. Burning off at higher temperatures in oxygen or air would be the best solution if possible. I believe temp above 300 is better. However, if it is not a pure DLC (as many new DLCs are made with metallic impurities), you may need a suitable post-stripping process.
