We are nearing the end of the coating transition phase from NJ to TX. The next transition will include the following coating family—Tufram®. Starting Monday, September 30th, we will no longer process Tufram in our NJ plant. If an order is received before Monday, September 30th, it will be processed in NJ. If an order is received after September 30th, we will ship those orders in an expedited fashion to our Texas location for processing. Please be aware that lead times could be affected due to the additional shipping times. However, we will do everything we can to process these orders as quickly as possible.

General Magnaplate will offer a 2-week grace period (up to October 11th) in which we will cover shipping costs from NJ to TX. All return shipping will be the responsibility of the customer. After the October 11th deadline, any orders sent to our NJ plant and requiring shipment to Texas will be billed directly to the customer. We want to encourage our customers to begin shipping orders directly to our Arlington, TX location as soon as possible to alleviate any potential lead time issues.

We have shut down our thermal spray operations in NJ, as part of the consolidation, and Plasmadize is now only available in Texas. Our Plasmadize® thermal spray composite coating not only protects and restores metal parts, but also has increased lubricity and better mold release than conventional spray methods.

CMPT is a dense, multi-directional, all-metal-weaving process which eliminates the need to machine layup-molds out of large, heavy metal ingots or castings that require so much time to fabricate. It combines the accuracy, precision, and good surface quality previously available only after machining. It enables high-temperature tooling for long or short production runs for cures up to 750° F. The toolface can be made from any alloy, from aluminum to zinc, including high nickel INVAR.
