FRICTIONCOAT – An Innovation from Schultz-Creehan

From Schultz-Creehan, a VT KnowledgeWorks member company:

FRICTIONCOAT: A New Coating Method for Metals with Superior Bond Strength

Schultz-Creehan, LLC  offers FRICTIONCOAT, a new Friction Stir Fabrication (FSF) coating method for metals which affords superior bond strength as compared to thermal spray coating technologies (such as flame spraying, high-velocity oxygen fuel thermal spraying, detonation gun, wire-arc coating, and plasma spraying).

Applications for FRICTIONCOAT include crack repair, metallic coatings with specialized application requirements, repair of damaged or worn surfaces, as well as acting as an interfacial layer for bonding metal matrix composites (MMCs).   Benefits of using FRICTIONCOAT include improved porosity, the potential to enhance corrosion resistance, enhanced wear resistance, and improved ballistic performance.
Dr. Jeff Schultz will present FRICTIONCOAT at the Materials Science & Technology 2009 conference, which will take place October 25-29, 2009 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
