AZ Technology developed most of its existing line of materials, paint and coatings for use on spacecraft, satellites and specialized terrestrial applications such as solar panels and observatories to meet specific customer-driven optical and/or resistivity requirements. Thus most of AZ Technology's existing line of paints/coatings
are designed to be low-outgassing and space
stable and to meet toxicity and flammability requirements. Many of their properties (reflectance, emittance, SRI, ESD, color) can be tailored to the customer's specific needs and, if needed, AZ Technology has the expertise and facilities to develop, produce and apply new paints.
Most of our coatings have been exposed to the space environment for long periods of time on the Optical Properties Monitor (OPM) attached to the outside of the Russian MIR space station (appox.9 months), the MIR MEEP POSA-I experiment (approx. 1 year), the Materials International Space Station Experiment (MISSE) attached to the outside of the International Space Station (approx. 4 years), and/or on the exterior of the International Space Station (1 to 10 years).
