MesoCoat’s CermaClad™ metal cladding technology receives award

MesoCoat Inc., based in Euclid, Ohio, USA, has announced that its CermaClad™ high speed metal cladding technology has been awarded with the prestigious R&D 100 Award. MesoCoat partnered with both Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Oak Ridge, Tennessee, USA, and Edison Materials Technology Center, Dayton, Ohio, USA, for this award.

CermaClad™ is a high energy density fusion cladding system for large area applications (pipe, plate, structures) where wear and/or corrosion limits the life of metal structures. It uses a high-density infrared (HDIR) lamp to fuse a uniform layer of powdered metal or polymer composite coating, such as 625, 825, monel, stainless steel, metallic glass, aluminum-zinc, or fusion bond epoxy to steel surfaces.

The process is similar to current cladding processes, however the one difference is that the laser or weld cladding heads are replaced by the HDIR lamp. The CermaClad™ materials are deposited onto the substrate by means of an electrostatic spray gun and the lamp passes over the steel, thus bonding the material to the substrate. The process claims to be 15-100 times quicker than the conventional laser/weld or thermal spray technologies.

Andrew Sherman, MesoCoat CEO, stated, “With this award MesoCoat’s core technologies have won a total of four R&D 100 awards; and these awards coupled with awards from the Department of Energy, National Institute of Standards and Technology, State of Ohio, and a cooperative development agreement with Petrobras act as an excellent validation for the potential of the disruptive technologies that are currently being matured and commercialised at MesoCoat”.
