Praxair Surface Technologies, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Praxair Inc, recently announced the signing of a multi-year sourcing agreement with Héroux-Devtek Inc, a leading Canadian manufacturer of aerospace and industrial products.
The deal is for the application of high-performance surface coatings for airframe components. It initially covers coating support for two specific airframe component programs.
Under terms of the agreement, Praxair will apply SermeTel® coating products to Messier-Bugatti-Dowty landing gear components for the Bombardier Global Express long-range business jet and components for the Airbus A330 and A340 wide-body commercial jetliners.
