Hardide-A coating has been selected for use on components for the new F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter. Following extensive testing, Hardide-A coating has been approved for use on drag chute components for the F-35A CTOL (conventional take-off and landing) variant being manufactured by Lockheed Martin. For these specific components, Hardide-A is being used in place of HVOF (high velocity oxy-fuel) thermal spray coatings. Click on headline to read more.
Hardide Coatings' Technical Director, Dr Yuri Zhuk is to give an after-dinner presentation to the Houston chapter of ASM International, the world's largest association of materials engineers and scientists on Tuesday 5 November, 2019. Yuri will talk about how chemical vapor deposition (CVD) coatings have been used in the oil and gas industry for more than 15 years, protecting critical parts of down-hole tools, valves and pumps against wear, erosion and corrosion. He will focus on the new developments in CVD coating technology, including a new ultra-low temperature CVD coating for duplex and super-duplex steel that doesn't affect its mechanical properties and corrosion resistance, coatings for steam turbine blades , TSP diamonds and screen mesh.
