HYBRID CROSSLINKED POLYMER COATINGS
In 1953, when German chemist Hermann Staudinger won the Chemistry Nobel Prize for demonstrating that polymers are long-chain (giant) macromolecules, the foundation was laid for the plastics industry. Longchain polymers could be organized to create very strong long-lasting materials that eventually found their way into every industrial sector.Continue Reading

Microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) refers to biocorrosion, which occurs when microorganisms break down materials. MIC is recognized worldwide as an important corrosion category, and can lead to significant asset losses and dangerous conditions across all industries.
Billions of dollars have been dedicated to understanding how microorganisms affect different industrial materials, and it is estimated that about 20% of all corrosion failures are due to microbially induced corrosion. (Flemming, 1996; Beech and Gaylarde, 1999).
Troubleshooting Coating Application Appearance Issues
When you’re painting a $400-million-dollar aircraft there is no room for error. Starting over is expensive, time-consuming and difficult, so you’ll need to be sure that you take time to prepare your facility, surfaces, materials, and have a well thought out plan for executing each job.
Having a plan is important because industries like aerospace have strict quality standards and if the quality is off, you’ll need to recall your exact process in order to resolve the problem.
How do Nycote® coatings keep you safe when you fly?
Have you ever wondered what is underneath the skin of an aircraft? Most people don’t give it a second thought as they’re flying along, but if you could see it you’d find a labyrinth of electrical wiring, wire harnesses, tubing and fasteners. On an aircraft critical applications require protection from heat, moisture, dust, dirt and solvents.Continue Reading
What’s new in the industry?
Antimicrobial everything! We’re seeing the terms “antimicrobial,” pop up all over the aerospace industry as we enter our new post-COVID reality. Is it just a buzzword? No! We all want to know that airlines are doing everything they can to protect us, the commuters, and now antimicrobial solutions have become a part of that. Let’s unpack the term.Continue Reading
