The University of Aveiro will develop a high performance moulding tool for the injection of enhanced thermoplastics micro-components. The moulding surface of the mould will be coated with nanocrystalline diamond, produced by means of chemical vapour deposition (CVD).

The nanocrystalline film is able to give to the moulding impression a higher wear resistance and a better cavity temperatures control, resulting in reduced maintenance needs of the tool and the production of better quality polymeric parts.
