The TIODIZE PROCESS is an electrolytic process using an alkaline bath which is maintained at room temperature. It produces anti-galling and wear resistant properties to the surface of titanium and its alloys, with no dimensional change.
FIBER/LITE® fasteners and fastening devices maintain high tensile, shear and fatigue strength at temperatures to 700°F and can be processed into a variety of signature free, non-corrosive shapes and sizes equivalent in strength to aluminum at two thirds the weight.
TRIBO/COMP® materials use graphite and kevlar® fibers combined with a resin and our proprietary lubricative pigments. TRIBO/COMP® materials are self-lubricating bearing materials with an unequaled wear life and a high strength to weight ratio.
HARDTUF® is an aluminum oxide coating for improving the hardness, lubricity and corrosion resistance of aluminum and aluminum alloys.
ALUMAZITE® is our family of aluminum pigmented coatings that prevent galvanic and environmental oxidation. Like our other anti-corrosion coatings, they have excellent adhesion qualities, are resistant to fluids and can be applied to a wide variety of materials.
TIOLON® is a family of PTFE (Teflon®) based lubricants designed for light loads, friction and wear surfaces as well as mold release applications.
In space applications, thermal control, EMISSIVITY and asorptivity are critical factors to the optimun peformance of a vehicle or satelite. Through years of research and work with various space agencies and manufacturers, TIODIZE has developed several processes and coatings to address these issues.
