Vacuum-tight metal for sealing thermoplastic and composite parts

Posted on Wed, Sep 12, 2012

Today we announced that we received a patent that covers making thermoplastics polymers and thermoset composites vacuum tight by sealing with our fully dense nanocrystalline Nanovate metal plating process. We use this plating process for high strength, vacuum integral metals to impart a high strength, tool steel like, and highly elastic sealing surface.

Integran Launches High Performance Multilayer Nanostructured Coatings

Posted on Tue, Aug 14, 2012

Today we announced that our plated Nanovate metals are available as multilayered coatings as well as fully dense, homogeneous layers.  So what does this mean?  Typically you would expect to have a plated metal with homogeneous metallurgical and physical properties throughout the thickness of the deposit.  In some cases, there are benefits to a "layered" deposit that varies material properties in distinct layers.

Nanovar lightweight and durable tooling technology ready for scale up

Posted on Tue, May 22, 2012

UMECO posted the press release below for our Nanovate NV coated (aka Nanovar) composite tooling for high lifespan aerospace carbon fiber composite part production.  Although they call the finished product "Carbovar" the idea is the same.  We take a fully dense nanocrystalline invar that is near a tool steel for hardness, but has good elasticity, and make it into a very thin (200 microns or 0.008") skin that sits overtop of the carbon fiber face sheet.  This means that there is no need to remove voids from the carbon face sheet as the Nanovate coating is providing the entire sealing surface.
