MesoCoat Secures Supply Contract for PComP Coating Materials

april 16 2012

Abakan Inc. apprised that its 71% controlled subsidiary, MesoCoat, has secured a supply contract for its PComP nanocomposite coating materials from a large industrial pump manufacturer and distributor in Canada. This supply contact further validates the superior value of MesoCoat’s PComP nanocomposite coatings in the $1+ billion North American tungsten carbide thermal spray powder coating market.

The PComP family of nanocomposite thermal spray powders offers unparalleled combinations of both toughness and hardness. This combination arises from a unique, patented coating microstructure that combines high hardness zones of a ductile metal in an optimum geometry. In MesoCoat Nitride based powders, the nanocomposite core provides high wear resistance, low friction and light weight; and the binders provide corrosion resistance, toughness, ductility, resiliency, and improve deposition efficiency. These Nitride PComP’s have low density and are up to 60% lighter in weight than carbide coatings, offer 2X higher spray cell productivity, have shown to have 3-7X lower wear and corrosion rates, and are much easier to grind compared to commercially available carbide coatings. The tungsten carbide based PComP’s utilize the same patented core structure and binder architecture to produce coatings that provide over 2X better wear and abrasion resistance as well as significantly better spallation resistance than conventional tungsten carbide coatings of the same chemistry.
