Innovation Partner

The goal of remaining at the forefront of technology combined with a rapidly evolving global defense market creates the need for increased development cadence and those who can’t keep pace will be left behind.  If the innovation race wasn’t enough, there’s the constant struggle to balance legacy systems, current production programs, and next-generation research and development.
For over two decades we have helped defense manufacturers meet these challenges through the development and application of advanced, high-performance, nanocomposite coatings. We are your innovation partner.
