Engines – We offer the aircraft and stationary gas turbine industries the means to resist many types of environmental damage. From thermal barrier coatings that allow you to run your engines hotter, to abradable coatings for tip clearance.

Airframe – Protection from corrosion, wear, and friction over a wide range of temperature excursions for such areas as landing gear, wing 
flaps and tracks, actuators, and gearboxes.

Airframe One-Stop-Shop (Montreal)
Opened in 2014, our Airframe Center of Excellence, strategically located in Montreal, provides one-stop-shop services to OEMs and their tier-one manufacturers. From HVOF coatings for small, large, and complex parts to services such as grinding, honing, other ancillary processes, and even part marking.
Chrome and Cadmium Replacement – We have a variety of thermal spray and high-performance slurry coatings that can help you make the switch from chrome and cadmium. Our replacement solutions provide excellent wear performance and comparable corrosion resistance. Recent additions to our chrome-free product line include SermaLoy™ CF and SermeTel® CF hexavalent chrome-free slurry coatings that are kinder on the environment but tougher than ever on corrosion.

Critical components and human lives depend on many of our products and solutions. Always mindful of these responsibilities, we pride ourselves on a commitment to leading-edge quality control, and we build quality into our products and processes around the globe. All of our aviation facilities are ISO registered and AS-9100, QS-9000, and Nadcap registered. In addition, we hold approvals from all major OEMs.
