Toronto-based Integran Technologies Inc. recently announced the commercial launch of its novel nanostructured multilayer coating technology. This latest innovation is formulated d to provide unprecedented design flexibility in applying unique structural and functional enhancements to a wide variety of finished and semi-finished components including metals, polymers and polymer composites.
Under development for several years with the support of the Canadian Government and the U.S. Department of Defense, Integran’s proprietary graded, multi-layer and nanolaminate technology is covered by a number of specific U.S. and foreign patent filings, including the recently issued US 8,129,034, which applies to lightweight articles, precision molds, sporting goods and automotive parts, and covers specific fine-grained metallic coatings and nanolaminates containing Ni, Cu, Co, Fe, Mo, W, Zn, P, B and C.
”Integran is pleased by the US Patent Office’s determination that Integran’s unique grain refinement technology also extends to its proprietary multi-layer laminate coating technology,” said Klaus Tomantschger, Integran’s vice president, intellectual property and licensing.
