High purity powders to be used in aerospace applications
Raymor receives a strategic contract from Boeing for its titanium powder
Montreal | May 25, 2005
Raymor Industries Inc. is proud to announce that its wholly-owned industrial subsidiary, AP&C Advanced Powders & Coatings Inc. (AP&C) has concluded a contract for Titanium powder production with the Boeing Company (NYSE: BA). Beoing will use this unique powder, given its sphericity and its purity, for aerospace applications.
Thanks to AP&C’s patented plasma atomization process, these powders are of a high purity, with an exceptional sphericity, ideal for aerospace applications. The plasma atomization process was developed at the beginning of the 90’s at Hydro-Quebec’s Shawinigan laboratory, in collaboration with Noranda.
“This contract represents an important breakthrough in the aerospace sector for our metallic powders,” said Mr. Stéphane Robert, President of Raymor Industries and AP&C.
With other negotiations underway, AP&C foresees the installation of a second reactor in its facility, which could hold up to six units. The forecasted revenue from powder sales is in the order of $3.5 million per year, per reactor.
About Raymor Industries:
Raymor Industries Inc. (TSX-V:RAR) has as its mission to become the leading Canadian developer of high technology and a
producer/recycler of advanced materials and nanomaterials for high value-added applications. In November 2004, Raymor Industries created
a wholly-owned, industrial subsidiary, AP&C Advanced Powders and Coatings, specializing in nanotechnology and advanced materials, and
comprising four operational divisions: (1) nanotechnology products, including nano-powders, nano-coatings, and single-walled carbon
nanotubes (C-SWNT) for “the applications of tomorrow”; (2) metal and ceramic coatings, which largely targets aerospace, military, and mining
applications; (3) spherical metallic powders, primarily used for biomedical and aerospace applications; and (4) net-shape forming, a
component manufacturing technique used for ballistic protection and other aerospace and military applications. Raymor holds the exclusive
rights to more than 20 patents throughout the world, with other patents pending.
