Our new video presents some of the engineered coatings General Magnaplate offers, along with the technical features that make them well-suited for use in demanding aerospace applications where failure is not an option.
With the right coating, you can expect more from your aerospace equipment — boosted productivity and decreased downtime and variability. General Magnaplate's proprietary finishes offer unique, problem-solving solutions for some of the toughest applications.
When two objects make contact with each other, there's going to be resistance, or friction, between the surfaces. Friction causes wear and affects the performance and operating life of components, so it’s important to minimize it.
No matter your industry, there will be times when you need to coat a part — whether to protect it from conditions in its target application, improve its performance, extend its lifetime or simply to enhance its aesthetics.
This video shows how General Magnaplate fortifies your engineered coating by infusing polymers into the substrate and applying a proprietary sealing process so it becomes an integral part of the new surface.
If your part is made from a high-strength metal or alloy and has undergone proper finishing processes, it’s easy to be confident that it will be immune to damage when used in the field.
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.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission to the moon. General Magnaplate was part of the Apollo program's success from the beginning, both on the ground innovating surface coatings for space exploration and, later, on the moon protecting the drill tubes that sampled the moon's soil and rocks.
General Magnaplate's Arlington, Texas, facility has expanded to keep pace with our substantial growth over the last five years.
