Our surface-enhancement coatings impart corrosion protection, chemical resistance, super-hardness and dry lubrication to a variety of industrial machines and components.
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.
By protecting moving machine components from wear and providing release properties where needed, engineered coatings can drastically reduce packaging machine downtime and increase yields.
Our engineered coatings have proven themselves in the most demanding downhole applications, protecting oil and gas tooling from galling, abrasion, impact and corrosion.
General Magnaplate, a global leader in engineered coatings technology, has announced that Ashley Saunders Russo has been appointed as Chief Operating Officer. Russo has been responsible for consolidating Magnaplate's operations through the merging of the Linden, New Jersey and the Arlington, Texas facilities and will continue to oversee ongoing business operations. Candi Aversenti will retain her position as CEO and Edmund Aversenti will stay on as president.Read more ...
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.Read more ...
