MicroCoating Technologies Adds Management to Company Ranks

Published on 2002-03-27. Author : SpecialChem

MicroCoating Technologies (MCT), a provider of open atmosphere, thin film coatings proudly announces the expansion of its management and technology team. Mr. Bill Dalzell has joined the company as its Director of the Protective Division. His responsibilities will include development and commercialization efforts of the Combustion Chemical Vapor Deposition (CCVD) process for protective applications such as jet turbine engine, wet corrosion protection, chromate conversion and diffusion barrier coatings.

"Protective coatings is a large revenue opportunity for MCT in that protective coatings battle the $100 billion annual corrosion damage with customers across many industries," states Andrew Hunt, the CEO of MCT. "Bill will provide the correct balance of leadership and experience to successfully manage the opportunities within these customer segments."

Mr. Dalzell has twelve years of experience in both thin and thick film research, design, development, and commercialization of thermal barrier and protective coatings at Pratt & Whitney. Not only does his expertise include engineering and inventing, he also held profit and loss responsibilities for several ongoing R&D programs at the company. Mr. Dalzell offers particular technical knowledge in the area of vacuum spray forming technologies, sol-gel, abradable coatings, and other wear resistant coating technologies and products. This expertise is supported by his efforts on twelve issued patents and several patents pending in the areas of coatings and processes. He received a Master of Business Administration from Nova Southeastern University and a Master of Science in Materials Science & Engineering from the University of Florida.

MCT's innovations include advanced material solutions for numerous Fortune 500 companies. The company's strength is based on its CCVD process, which is used to apply environmentally friendly thin films to a variety of substrates including metals, ceramics and polymers. This state-of-the-art process provides a number of advantages over traditional thin film technologies, including flexibility in deposition materials and substrates, lower capital and operating costs, and faster cycle times. These coatings can be used in a broad range of applications, such as electronics, broadband, superconductors, architectural glass, and corrosion resistant materials. The technology is licensed exclusively to MCT through the Georgia Tech Research Corporation. A partial list of government and industrial partners include ABB, Ballard, International Paper, Sulzer Innotech, Allied Signal, the Department of Energy, and the National Science Foundation.
