Our company is partner in 6 research projects beside Rumanian research institutes and universities. The subject of the project proposed by TheBareCode is very important for us because at this moment , our company realizes the thermic protection with ZrO2-8%YO of the black boxes of the aircraft.

Role in the project:

Our specialists will elaborate the spraying technologies and we will suggest materials for the coating . The coatings will be realized with the HVOF, HVAF and APS processes on samples which will be then analyzed. We will optimize the parameters in order to obtain a maximum efficiency.
