ART has discovered a vanadium-based corrosion- and wear-resistant coating suitable for equipment with in the harshest of environments, specifically subterranean drilling. This unique coating, produced in a thermo-reactive diffusion process, can be used to treat most materials containing carbon or nitrogen. It has high hardness, good wear resistance, and a metallurgical bond – all coupled with excellent corrosion resistance. The coating is ideal for applications requiring wear resistance, corrosion resistance, or both.
Akron Research and Technology (ART) has developed a wear-resistant coating for the defense industry. This coating is a thermochemical diffusion hardening process for titanium. Subjected to rigorous testing, the coating is an excellent treatment for Navy submarine fire suppression valves. In fact, ART’s titanium diffusion hardening technology is the prime choice for applications requiring wear resistance in submerged environments.
CLIENT: KRYTOS INDUSTRIES
ART has developed a major technological breakthrough for Krytos Industries. This technology utilizes a combination of treatment processes not seen before to greatly increase the wear and galling resistance of the titanium substrate, while maintaining titanium’s excellent corrosion resistance. Producing properties that previous technologies have not been able to obtain using titanium as a base material, this breakthrough has allowed Krytos Industries to successfully produce a titanium pistol slide, a feat never before accomplished. ART’s titanium coating technology is unsurpassed in performance and is a great choice for applications that will benefit from lightweight components with excellent wear properties.
