Date:11/24/2008

ASCOT, England, Nov. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- E6 Ventures has agreed to participate in the next round of funding in Diamond Hard Surfaces Ltd.

Diamond Hard Surfaces' unique diamond-like coating material has properties of lower wear, high hardness and an extremely low coefficient of friction. Applying the Adamant(TM) coating to other materials gives extended life in high temperature, chemically aggressive and abrasive environments.

The low temperature process allows the coating of a range of substrates from steel to thermoplastics to give components such as bearings and valves, for example, reduced friction, enhanced wear resistance and load carrying characteristics over and above traditional materials and other coated surfaces. Currently Diamond Hard Surfaces produce three distinct grades of coating. Each is suitable for different applicat
