Powdermet, Inc. Exhibits with MesoCoat, Inc. in Booth #2013 at AeroMat 2011

Euclid, Ohio, May 5, 2011Powdermet Inc. is co-exhibiting with MesoCoat, Inc. at this year’s Advanced Aerospace Materials & Processes Conference & Exposition (AeroMat) May 23-26, 2011, Long Beach, California.

Available at Booth #2013, these two dynamic companies will be on-hand to discuss how their clean, green, sustainable material solutions will meet your design and manufacturing needs for advanced materials. This conference is the leading forum addressing the latest developments in the areas of structural properties, materials characterization, environmental effects, design, synthesis, processing and manufacturing technology. With more than 5,000 attendees, Powdermet’s and MesoCoat’s presence is sure to be a successful venture.

Learn about our technology    
Stop by our Booth #2013 to discover how our product lines use green alternatives to the elements of environmental concern. Powdermet’s technology is based on the design and production of engineered particle building blocks that incorporate nano- and micro-scale structural features developed into a safe, free-flowing particle delivery system. MesoCoat’s products and services are a direct replacement for hard chrome plating, as well as weld cladding processes.

Discover PComP™, SComP™ and MComP™ 
 SComP™ is a metal matrix syntactic composite that is created using powder metallurgical techniques combining ultra lightweight hollow ceramic spheres with standard aluminum alloys to decrease the density of the alloys by 30-40% yet retaining up to 90% of the mechanical properties. SComP™ materials shine in their ability to absorb high-impact energies whether it is from large body impact, ballistics, blade fragments, or collisions.

MComP™, Powdermet’s super metal, is a more traditional metal matrix composite created using powder metallurgical techniques combining Aluminum with two other lightweight and high specific stiffness metals—Boron and Lithium—at the nano-level. These composites offer very high strength-to-weight ratios with final part at a density of 2.5g/cc. These final parts can be annealed or aged and are available in rod, bar, tube, plate, sheet and some near-net and net shape parts.

PComP™ is a family of metal ceramic composite particles specifically engineered for thermal spray applications sold exclusively through MesoCoat, Inc. PComP™ composites provide an optimum blend of the high wear and hardness associated with nanocrystalline ceramic materials with the ductility and toughness of metal binders.

Get to know Powdermet and MesoCoat
Talk directly with the companies’ top executives. James Chew, Business Development Vice President, Curt Glasgow, General Manager, PComP™ and Brian Doud, General Manager, Powdermet will all be on hand showcasing the latest developments in these products. Check out samples of our product lines and learn about our new partnerships.

James Chew is excited about this opportunity. “MesoCoat and Powdermet have the right materials for hexavalent chrome replacement and dimensional restoration. With the DoD concerning with platform service life extension, we have the right stuff to affordably help the DoD and the defense industry make that happen.”
