coating 

Process of depositing a thin film of transparent material on the surface of an optical element (e.g. lens, mirror, prism) for the purpose of decreasing or increasing reflection. Reflection from specific wavelengths can be reduced or eliminated by varying the thickness of the film and by multilayer coating. Syn. blooming. See anti-reflection coating; white body; bandpass filter; Fresnel's formula.

Because most coatings react with magnesium and are pulled out of the mold when the casting is removed, researchers developed a commercially suitable product that would minimize that reaction.
Unlike other surface treatments that either increase wear resistance or improve friction behavior, DLC coatings make both properties available in a single surface treatment.
Tool corrosion can be caused by water leaks contacting untreated mold surfaces, seeping through micro-cracks, or condensing in the mold (perhaps due to chillers running too cold), as well as spillage from ill-fitting o-rings and pipe fittings, or from hoses during hook-up, says Mike McCabe, marketing manager for Bekaert, a supplier of mold coatings.
