Industrial Hard Carbon, LLC was established in 2011, and continues to expand its reach into the motorsports, manufacturing, oil and gas, printing, and firearms industries.

IHC is much more than just a thin film coating company where companies can send products to receive diamond-like coating. IHC consults the client on their options and customizes the application to each client’s specific needs. And because of IHC’s own manufacturing efficiency, reactor and tooling design expertise, thin film coating can be applied to just one item or thousands for a reasonable charge.

Surface prep treatment is completed in-house to prepare the part for the adhesion of the coating, and this ensures the diamond-like coating is applied evenly to all areas. In fact, Industrial Hard Carbon is so certain of the quality of its thin film that clients are suggested to test IHC’s diamond-like coating compared to competitors. 

And due to IHC’s process and equipment, turnaround time is typically less than two weeks, but items can be rushed to be turned around in as little as 24 hours if needed.

IHC was founded by George A. Barr, B.A., M.B.A., and was formed from Anatech Ltd.
