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.
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.
