- In nature carbon exists in several forms according to the chemical bond. For example: graphite (“sheets” of sp2 bonds) and diamond (sp3 bonds).
- Tearing carbon from molecules of certain gases – called precursors – it is possible to create an extremely thin film from a combination of sp2 and sp3 bonds.
- These films are called DLC, they have a low friction coefficient, a high mechanical hardness and a great corrosion resistance.
Environment and safety
Since its origins, Beretta has been focused on the environment and on safety. For this reason, in addition to the achievement of the ISO 9001, ISO 14001 (environment) and ISO 45001 (safety) certificates, the Company has obtained the Integrated Environmental Authorization (AIA).
In this perspective, the personnel having access to the chromium plating area – limited to a few specialized technicians – is constantly monitored.
