The Material for the Mechanical, Optical, and Electronics Industries
Diamond plates are emerging as a highly versatile industrial material that outperforms conventional materials in extreme environments. Advancements in chemical vapor deposition (CVD) have enabled scalable production of synthetic diamond in plates and other shapes to meet growing demand across sectors.
Diamond's unmatched hardness, heat conductivity and chemical resistance enable applications not possible with even the most advanced metals, ceramics or composites. CVD diamond plates are seeing adoption in optics, electronics, tooling, aerospace and other fields to push boundaries of speed, heat and durability.
Labrilliante is a manufacturer of CVD diamond plates in the USA. We grow polycrystalline and single-crystal diamond to exacting specifications unmatched in quality and performance.
Our diamond plates deliver premium thermal conductivity exceeding 1700 W/mK for photonics and high-power electronics. The exceptional hardness of our Tool Grades resists wear in machining of composites and reactive metals. We specialize in custom diamond solutions tailored to your most demanding applications. Our engineers collaborate with partners across aerospace, defense, energy, optics, semiconductors, tooling and beyond to understand unique requirements and actualize the enormous potential of synthesized diamond.
Labrilliante provides diamond plates across four capability grades spanning a multitude of uses where traditional materials fall short:
- Optical Class - tremendously heat-conducive, 1700-1800 watts per meter kelvin
- Electronic Level - exceptionally thermal conductive, 1700-1800 w/mK
- Thermal Tier - dull diamond, 900-1000 w/mK
- Tool Category - dark diamond, 700-800 w/mK
SCD plates consist of one continuous diamond crystal lattice. They are created by depositing the diamond onto a small seed diamond crystal in a CVD reactor. SCD displays superior thermal conductivity (2000 W/mK) but is available in smaller sizes due to production challenges. SCD plates work well for laser optics, semiconductor fabrication and other electronics uses.
For larger diamond plates, tiny diamond crystallites are fused together in the CVD process to form a contiguous plate up to eight inches across. Polycrystalline diamond (PCD) exhibits slightly lower but still excellent thermal properties around 1000 W/mK. The versatile PCD format serves well for water jet nozzles, tooling, watch jewels, coatings and aerospace.
The attributes of CVD diamond plates are fueling broader adoption as manufacturing processes mature. Diamond plates deliver game-changing benefits spanning heat dissipation, wear life, corrosion resistance and precision.
