Our Vision

We provide novel solutions to corrosion, degradation and fouling. We want our expertise in materials and coatings to influence the way the world thinks about using and protecting our natural resources. Our company prioritizes building a team full of diverse backgrounds, experience and personalities, as we believe the world is stronger when diversified.

Our Story and Commitment

Our founders recognized a need for knowledge about galvanic corrosion and specialty coatings that used the latest know-how to provide greener, safer, better protection. Additionally, provide active, safe, protection for our modern world. We started with the need to rid the world of hexavalent chromium. Used extensively as a corrosion inhibitor, hexavalent chromium is one of the toxic heavy metals on the global list of carcinogens and pollutants; poisons, toxins and carcinogens can be replaced with modern engineered solutions that better understand alloys and the environment.
