MesoCoat Licenses Ceramic Cladding, Coating Technology from Battelle

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

Comment | More

MesoCoat has acquired exclusive commercial rights to the high density infrared surface modification technology IP Portfolio from UT-Battelle, LLC.

This surface engineering technology, developed at the industrial materials division of Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), enables the application of coatings and cladding materials at rates 1-2 orders of magnitude faster, and with better quality than alternate processes such as laser or weld cladding or furnace processing, according to MesoCoat.

Through this technology, large areas can  be rapidly clad with wear- or corrosion-resistant metal or cermet coatings. MesoCoat says this technology has the potential to revolutionize the coating and cladding industry because it enables metallurgical bonding of metal and ceramic coatings to be applied very rapidly and at low cost to large, previously unreachable areas due to the dimensional limitation of currently available equipments. These areas include ship decks, building supports, reactor vessels and equipments, bridges and pipes.

MesoCoat is a venture-backed, nanotechnology materials science company in metal protection. The company's surface engineering technologies have been the recipient of three prestigious R&D 100 awards, a National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) award for "100 year life coatings for infrastructure”, and the NorTech Innovation Award for environmentally-friendly coatings, according to the company.
