The Surface Engineers

Lower cost and environmental impact

The aerospace industry is increasingly focused on reducing carbon footprint, maintenance and total operating costs. Advanced materials are key contributors to achieving the goals of lower weight, extended lifetime and reduced fuel consumption.

Ionbond continues to be at the forefront of engineering surface treatments enabling the use of conventional and alternative lightweight materials to increase performance and reduce the overall cost of ownership. Unlike many other conventional surface finishes, PVD technology is environmentally friendly with no toxic byproducts.

Tribobond™ coatings for increased reliability of components

Ionbond has developed the Tribobond™ line of low friction and wear protection coatings for components and dedicated pre- and post treatments that outperform conventional electroplating and other surface treatments and enable the use of modern materials like titanium in critical applications.

Quality assured

Ionbond also holds ISO 9001 certification throughout its network of coating service centers. Key sites hold major aerospace prime and component manufacturer approvals. AS 9100 and NADCAP certification is held by Ionbond’s aerospace dedicated manufacturing site in the UK.
