Abstract:
MesoCoat is pleased to announce that it has acquired exclusive commercial rights to the high density infrared surface modification technology IP Portfolio from UT-Battelle, LLC.

MesoCoat Inc. exclusively licenses transformational surface engineering technology developed at a National Lab

Euclid, OH | Posted on August 24th, 2010

This breakthrough surface engineering technology was developed over the last decade at the infrared processing center, part of the industrial materials division of Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Through technology transfer collaboration efforts and licensing of multiple patents, MesoCoat is commercializing this revolutionary technology which enables the application of coatings and cladding materials at rates 1-2 orders of magnitude faster, and with better quality than alternate processes such as laser or weld cladding or furnace processing.

This High Density Infrared technology developed at ORNL and being commercialized by MesoCoat, enables large areas to be rapidly clad with wear or corrosion resistant metal or cermet coatings. This technology has the potential to revolutionize the coating and cladding industry because it enables metallurgical bonding of metal and ceramic coatings to be applied very rapidly and at low cost to large, previously unreachable areas due to the dimensional limitation of currently available equipments. These areas include ship decks, building supports, reactor vessels and equipments, bridges and pipes. Additional benefits include the reduced use of natural resources and potential energy conservation, and the elimination of reliance on environmentally damaging substances such as chromate primers to protect large structures. To accelerate commercialization, Mr. Greg Engleman has joined the company from the ORNL, MesoCoat has installed its own lab-scale high density infrared application equipment, and the company has executed a space act agreement with NASA Glenn research center to access the higher power equipment for demonstration and validation of the technology for leading Oil and Gas companies.
