Ionbond coatings for aerospace components
IHI Ionbond’s PVD, CVD and PACVD coatings are routinely applied on a variety of components in the aerospace industry. Their unique properties enhance performance, decrease operation costs, push application limits and even enable applications that would otherwise be impossible. Ionbond takes pride in having our coatings fly in various air- and spacecraft. Beyond the performance enhancement, Ionbond coatings also contribute to a cleaner environment by being an alternative to the environmentally hazardous electroplating process that is widely used in the aerospace industry.
