Integran Technologies has received patent protection for new technology within its Nanovate CoP platform which the company says extends the applicability of the core technology beyond that of being an environmentally benign alternative to electrolytic hard chromium (EHC) plating. This new technology covers porosity-free, fine-grained and/or amorphous co-bearing metallic materials, and, unlike engineering hard chromium coatings, does not compromise the fatigue performance of components, Integran says.
Nanovate CoP coating technology is specifically formulated for aerospace and defense applications and, when deposited on ferrous-alloy substrates, exhibits a fatigue life equivalent to, or exceeding that of the uncoated substrate material, the company says.
