Raymor Receives a Strategic Contract from Boeing for its Titanium Powder

Published on 2005-05-26. Author : SpecialChem

MONTREAL -- Raymor Industries Inc. is proud to announce that its wholly-owned industrial subsidiary, AP&C Advanced Powders & Coatings Inc. (AP&C) has concluded a contract for Titanium powder production with THE BOEING COMPANY (NYSE: BA). BOEING will use this unique powder, given its sphericity and its purity, for aerospace applications.

Thanks to AP&C's patented plasma atomization process, these powders are of a high purity, with an exceptional sphericity, ideal for aerospace applications. The plasma atomization process was developed at the beginning of the 90's at Hydro-Quebec's Shawinigan laboratory, in collaboration with Noranda.

"This contract represents an important breakthrough in the aerospace sector for our metallic powders," said Mr. Stéphane Robert, President of Raymor Industries and AP&C.

With other negotiations underway, AP&C foresees the installation of a second reactor in its facility, which could hold up to six units. The forecasted revenue from powder sales is in the order of $3.5 million per year, per reactor.

RAYMOR INDUSTRIES INC. (TSX-V:RAR) has as its mission to become the leading Canadian developer of high technology and a producer/recycler of advanced materials and nanomaterials for high value-added applications. In November 2004, Raymor Industries created a wholly-owned, industrial subsidiary, AP&C Advanced Powders and Coatings, specializing in nanotechnology and advanced materials, and comprising four operational divisions:

(1) nanotechnology products, including nano-powders, nano-coatings, and single-walled carbon nanotubes (C-SWNT) for "the applications of tomorrow";
(2) metal and ceramic coatings, which largely targets aerospace, military, and mining applications;
(3) spherical metallic powders, primarily used for biomedical and aerospace applications; and
(4) net-shape forming, a component manufacturing technique used for ballistic protection and other aerospace and military applications.

Raymor holds the exclusive rights to more than 20 patents throughout the world, with other patents pending.
