Extreme Environment Coating Solutions

Solving your extreme environment coating challenge

In today's global industries improving the performance of materials by a few percent can make the difference between success and failure. Over 35 years we have applied CVD and related technologies across the periodic table to achieve breakthrough advances such as the...

Bridging the gap between theory and practice

Having worked on over 300 CVD projects over 35 years, encompassing R&D, consultancy and systems engineering across all major industries requiring extreme environment coatings, and utilising the full range of the periodic table of materials the one constant has...

Creating a Bespoke CVD System

Whilst we can help start your R&D process using our own systems at our High Wycombe site, in order to fully scale up your development effort you may well want your own system built to your own particular requirements. As you will see from our website we have build...

At the cutting edge…

As experts in the field of CVD we are at the cutting edge of new material development. It’s not often you can say that you are part of a team that has developed a brand new material, but on several of occasions we have done just that, including in partnership with the...

Tungsten – its strength and weakness

WE love tungsten! At 3410 degrees C, it has the highest melting point of all metals. This makes it an incredibly useful metal, even if the green lobby manage to get rid of all the ordinary light bulbs out there. Electrical contacts, x-ray targets, windings &...

Silicon Carbide – Wonderfully Versatile

CVD can be used on materials across the periodic table to create advanced materials with exceptional physical properties. One of these material is Silicon Carbide. Silicon Carbide deposited by CVD is a wonderfully versatile material with a myriad of applications and...

Tantalum – An Extraordinary Metal

CVD is a highly versatile process - over 30 years we have solved coating challenges in all major industries using this process, either alone or to produce complex hybrid coatings. It can be succesfully applied across the periodic table producing coatings with...

Hafnium carbide – now that’s hot!

CVD is a highly flexible process that can be used on a wide range of compounds offering coatings with exceptional physical properties. But there is still a great deal of new R&D that can be done to create new breakthrough coatings. Hafnium carbide is the most...

Rocket Thruster Engines to Take Man to Mars

Background As we look to push the boundaries of human exploration and efficacy in an evolving world innovative and integrated material solutions and technologies are required. The project undertaken will develop these solutions via performance enhancing coatings...

Unleash the power of the periodic table!

CVD has many industrial applications ranging from wear resistant coatings on steel tools to free-standing ceramic components. It can be used with elements and compounds right across the periodic table. Some examples are: TiN/TiC/Al2O3 - Wear resistant coatings on...
