nCoat, Inc. (OTCBB: NCOA) ("nCoat" or the "Company") today announced that its North Carolina-based operating subsidiary, High Performance Coatings, Inc. or HPC, has entered a collaborative agreement with Universal Technical Institute or UTI, to train automotive engineers on the performance and use of coatings.
Universal Technical Institute Partners With HPC to Improve Automotive Engineering Training
WHITSETT, NC | Posted on June 28th, 2007
Under the agreement as a sponsoring partner, HPC is teaching multiple courses on its state-of-the-art nano-coating and micron particulate coating technology at each of the 10 UTI campuses across the nation. The courses have been initially offered at the "Hot Rod University" located at the UTI facility in Exton, Pennsylvania, and the NASCAR-based NTI (NASCAR Technical Institute) campus in Mooresville, NC. By fall, other campuses in California, Arizona, Washington, Florida, and Texas will have similar offerings. Of particular interest is the benefit the high performance coating can bring to exhaust system designs in the schools' "Dyno program."
"Training the next generation of automotive engineers at UTI and the current generation of racing crews at NTI creates an incredible mutual value proposition for both organizations," said Ken Crocheron, Vice President of Business Development for nCoat. "Since nCoat coatings have performance far outpacing competitive coatings, after graduation from UTI students will enter the marketplace with cutting edge knowledge and want to use nCoat products. This is win/win."
HPC, a wholly owned subsidiary of nCoat, has been in business for 25 years and was founded on the sales of thermal barrier, corrosion resistant, lubritic and appearance high performance coatings for the motor sports industry. After the acquisition by nCoat in 2005, its product line was enhanced by nCoat's recent nano-level advances in coating technology. The infusion also expanded HPC's market-base to include manufacturers of commercial trucks, RVs, defense applications, motorcycles, aerospace components, aviation parts, oil and gas industry suppliers, and energy producers.
Now, with the announcement of the agreement with UTI, the next generation of motor sports engineers will have a new set of parameters and tolerances from which they can extract even better performance from their engines. Direct benefits of the coatings technology include better heat control, reduced friction, and overall increased lubricity for the internal parts, but the students seem to care most about the marked increase in horsepower.
