SEATTLE, March 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Modumetal, the leading developer and manufacturer of the class of metals materials known as nanolaminates, today announced that its CEO, Christina Lomasney, will present the company latest technical paper at CORROSION 2017, the world's largest corrosion conference and exposition. In the presentation, Modumetal will unveil findings from laboratory and field trials of its nanolaminated zinc-nickel alloy fasteners using a modified version of the ASTM D610 standards. Results demonstrate that Modumetal's nanolaminated material outperforms existing and emerging coating technologies in corrosion resistance across a variety of conditions, from the laboratory to the field.
Using its patented nano-lamination technology, Modumetal has demonstrated an entirely new class of metals and materials. In contrast to traditional heat-based production techniques, Modumetals are made using a patented, electrochemically controlled deposition process to produce bulk metals and metal coatings that yield superior performance characteristics. In this case, fasteners were coated in a zinc-based nanolaminate to enable significantly-improved corrosion resistance when compared to conventional galvanize, cadmium, zinc phosphate with poly-tetra fluoroethylene (PTFE) and other coating systems. In addition to extensive laboratory testing performed by DNV-GL, field trials of the product were independently carried out by the U.S. Coast Guard, ConocoPhillips and others. The company has made the fastener-coating product broadly available through online sales, with particularly compelling applications in offshore oil and gas operations.
"It's an honor to present our newest results in front of industry thought leaders and pioneers at CORROSION 2017," said Lomasney. "Pushing the bounds of innovation to build better infrastructure is crucial, both in the U.S. and abroad. By creating new production processes and materials to enhance corrosion resistance in various environments, we are doing our part to create lasting infrastructure for the future."
Modumetal is exhibiting at CORROSION 2017, at booth #2846. Members of the Modumetal team will be on site throughout the week to discuss both the findings from the paper and other advances in nanolaminated materials.
Modumetal, Inc. of Seattle, WA, is pioneering the manufacture of a new class of nanolaminated metals with applications across a range of industries including energy, infrastructure, aerospace and automotive.
