Featured Applications



Industrial

Our surface-enhancement coatings impart corrosion protection, chemical resistance, super-hardness and dry lubrication to a variety of industrial machines and components.



Food Processing

From extruders to dies to knives, our USDA- and FDA-compliant engineered coatings can eliminate food adhesion, wear and lubricants, which helps keep your food processing equipment running clean.



Packaging

By protecting moving machine components from wear and providing release properties where needed, engineered coatings can drastically reduce packaging machine downtime and increase yields.



Oil and Gas

Our engineered coatings have proven themselves in the most demanding downhole applications, protecting oil and gas tooling from galling, abrasion, impact and corrosion.

How Engineered Coatings Prevent Equipment Failure in Aerospace Applications

Aerospace environments involve some of the toughest conditions for equipment. Threats like friction, galling, corrosion and high temperatures can cause some of the industry’s most common metals and alloys to fail. And if a part fails, it can be impossible to access or too costly to repair or replace.

Engineered coatings address these challenges by creating dry, lubricated surfaces that protect critical components from wear and weather—maximizing their lifespan in demanding aerospace applications.

Common Threats to Aerospace Parts

Some of most common threats to aerospace equipment include the following.

Fretting, galling and friction. Fretting and galling occur when sliding metal surfaces such as aluminum and titanium alloys generate friction and stick together under heavy loads—like when a spacecraft leaves or re-enters Earth’s atmosphere. These conditions can cause wear, fatigue and seizing on critical components.
