Synergistic Coatings Meet Demanding Aerospace Challenges

Aerospace and airframe manufacturers know how difficult it is to design components that can withstand extreme environments while providing corrosion and wear protection. Making things even more complicated is the need to comply with international standards, such as REACH. While engineers favor composites, aluminum, titanium and magnesium for their light weight, most of these metals are highly susceptible to corrosion if left unprotected. A new white paper explores how applying synergistic surface enhancement coatings can address and overcome these industry challenges.

Choose Surface Treatments Early To Avoid Future Problems

Surface Treatment White Paper

Too often the coating of parts is an afterthought for design engineers. Rather than being a part of the discussion in the early stages of design, designers try to solve problems with coatings at the point of manufacturing—or even after manufacturing. While each type of surface treatment provides its own unique set of properties and benefits, each of these processes also has limitations that should be addressed early on in the design process to ensure optimal performance.

Engineered Coatings Alleviate Drill Tooling Wear

Oil and gas coatings white paper

With today’s oil and gas wells pushing deeper and deeper, metal drilling tools have to contend with increasingly corrosive conditions. Deep wells not only tend to exhibit concentrations of sour gas but also subject drilling tools to high temperature and pressures. Making matters worse, the rotary action of drilling exposes tools to constant wear. Offshore conditions are even more challenging given the difficulty and cost of maintaining drill strings.

New Breed of Release Coatings Withstand Extreme Temperatures, Increase Production Rates

High temperature coatings white paper

Despite several decades of advances in materials science and coating formulations, engineers are still searching for release coatings able to withstand temperatures above 500° F and finding that traditional polymer coatings are not up to the task. To meet the demands of high-temperature conditions, a new family of coatings from General Magnaplate Corporation has just been introduced.
