Low Friction Coatings Manufacturers & Suppliers in US

IBC Materials & Technologies, LLC has manufactured several components for the US Air Force’s aircraft weapons systems. These components were machined, inspected and protected with wear and corrosion resistant coatings to increase their life. The US Air Force has been flight testing our PEO (Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation) coated missile launcher rails for over 5 years with zero wear, leading to drawing changes that now require IBC’s PEO coatings for critical missile launcher components. To complement the wear resistance of PEO coated aluminum components, IBC’s customized DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coating forms an excellent pairing as a surface coating for steel components.
