Ikonics Corporation, a US imaging technology company, has entered into a long-term agreement (LTA) with EnCore Composite Structures Inc, a supplier of aircraft interiors, seats and composite structures based in California.

Ikonics will provide proprietary materials to be used by EnCore to make composite structures to for commercial aircraft production.  The LTA runs to 2021, and revenue is dependent on the production rate of the commercial jetliner using this technology.

‘Our first discussions with EnCore began in 2008, and we have worked together to build a solid partnership over the years,’ said Bill Ulland, Ikonics CEO, said. ‘Ikonics Advanced Materials Solutions (AMS) business unit will be supporting this LTA from their newly completed 27,300 ft2 facility.’
