Archer Technicoat Ltd
A SME specialising in coatings and ceramic composites, primarily by chemical vapour deposition and infiltration.
We develop materials solutions for extreme environments such and also manufacture coating equipment on lab and industrial scales so that lab scale developments can be turned into industrial products.
Coatings include tungsten, silicon carbide (tested against PbLi), carbon and boron nitride, as well as rare-earth oxides such as erbia and yttria. These oxides have been tested for H isotope permeation and lithium corrosion.
Coatings can be applied to both flat surfaces, porous materials and to yarns of reinforcement fibres for composites.
We develop and produce shaped pilot scale SiC/SiC composites and are part of the supply chain for W/W composites.
