DLC Coating stands for Diamond-Like Carbon coating, and is a nanocomposite coating that has unique properties of natural diamond low friction, high hardness, and high corrosion resistance.
The near black color, DLC Coated Merkava Isotope Fob is a keychain fob specifically designed to hold a standard 3mm x 23mm self-luminous tritium vial (included with your choice of color). Tritium vials come in a variety of colors, and will glow for many years without requiring any type of “charging” from sunlight or artificial light.
Unlike our conventional line of glow fobs, the DLC coated Isotope fob was designed around the use of a glass tritium vial. This makes it noticeably smaller than our standard glow fobs, and allows it to glow continuously without any type of charging cycle! The Isotope is a stainless steel housing, near black color DLC Coated finish. There are 7 slots on each side of the housing as well as a hole in the bottom to provide maximum tritium visibility, yet offers superior protection of the glass vial. Once the tritium is installed, you simply insert the included rubber plug and attach the split ring. This prevents the tritium vial from sliding out, yet provides an easy way to exchange vials if you want a different color.
Attach the DLC Coated Merkava Isotope Fob to your car keys or even a flashlight, so you can always find them when the lights go out. Attach it to your jacket as a zipper pull so your friends can locate you inside a movie theatre or outside at night! You can clip it to a backpack, camping gear, or even to the pull chain on a ceiling fan…the uses are endless!
