We all know the saying “diamonds are a girl’s best friend”. But there are actually some amazing ways that diamonds are used all over the world other than simply sitting pretty on our finger. In fact, synthetic diamonds are one of the most sought after materials in the world!
The Ultimate Supermaterial
Unlike the traditional diamond, synthetic diamonds are manmade and are incredibly versatile. Element Six produce super materials for a huge range of industries. You might be surprised to find out just how many industries make use of synthetic diamonds!
The use of synthetic diamonds is constantly growing. They’re such a strong and robust material that industries are making use of them more and more.
You might be surprised at some of the ways industries use synthetic diamonds in order to make their products stronger and more reliable.
When it comes to building an aeroplane, the weight of the components is hugely important. Think about it, you wouldn’t want to travel on an aeroplane that struggled to take off due to it’s weight would you?!
Modern aircraft are built using Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) composites which are incredibly lightweight, making them the perfect material for the job. However, they are notoriously difficult to cut through. This is where the ultimate supermaterial comes into it’s own. Drill bits are coated with synthetic diamonds which can cut through the tough material like butter.
There are many uses for synthetic diamonds in the healthcare industry. They are often used in non-invasive surgical procedures where fibre optics are used to send out high powered, targeted laser beams into a patient. If you’ve ever had radiotherapy, then synthetic diamonds may well have been involved in the equipment used to treat you.
Items in our homes
Synthetic diamonds are regularly used in high performance speakers to produce incredible sound quality that’s completely undistorted.
You may also be surprised to learn that synthetic diamonds might have been used to produce clean, high quality finish cuts to the furniture you own. Furniture needs to be made from robust products in order to last us for many years – but those materials can be difficult to cut through. Using synthetic diamonds makes it such a simple process, and the results are clean, elegant cuts and beautifully crafted furniture.
Synthetic diamonds don’t just play a part in the interior finish of our homes. The exterior of our houses need to be made of extremely resistant materials that will withstand all kinds of batterings from the weather. Those materials are inevitably tough to cut through, and so yet again it’s the synthetic diamond, the ultimate supermaterial that steps in to do the job. Tools made with synthetic diamonds are able to cut through bricks, tiles and other extremely tough materials with ease – making our houses strong enough to withstand the elements.
