Thermal barrier coating wins award

nCoat has announced that one of its nano-structured coatings has won the Utah Innovations Award in the Chemicals/Materials Science category of the fourth annual Stoel Utah Innovations Awards competition.

The winning nCoat nanotechnology-based coating is specially designed to protect materials requiring a high level of heat resistance (thermal barrier). The nCoat coating has been tested and used for use on space vehicles to create thermal barriers upon re-entry. nCoat's nano-coating has been tested to withstand temperatures in excess of 4,200 degrees Fahrenheit for sustained durations.

"The commercial prospects are huge and apply across multiple markets,” said Paul Clayson, nCoat's co-founder, CEO and chairman. “This team has created a world-class product." (photo nCoat)
