MesoCoat & University of Akron sign agreement for advanced inorganic coatings

Collaboration received $2 million Ohio Third Frontier Award

Published April 7, 2011
MesoCoat, Inc. and The University of Akron (UA) have formed a collaborative effort to develop and accelerate commercialization of advanced inorganic coatings directed at reducing the nation’s $300 billion corrosion problem. Under this collaborative effort, financed through the recently awarded and highly competitive $2 million Ohio Third Frontier Award, The University of Akron’s Corrosion and Reliability Engineering (CAREs) program and MesoCoat will perform development, testing and risk reduction of advanced inorganic coatings (including ceramer, metallic, and ceramic nanocomposite coatings) in a new joint-use facility to be built at the University. MesoCoat will provide development engineers and technicians to supervise and train University interns as well as their award winning CermaClad high energy density, large area, high speed cladding technology to apply these advanced coatings to various metal surfaces. This collaborative effort will utilize the expertise of two leading corrosion solution organizations to develop new coating applications that will reduce corrosion costs and future emissions for several industry sectors including conventional and alternate energy production, infrastructure and transportation.
