AZ Technology Opens Second Facility in Athens Alabama

October 29 2008

On October 29, 2008, AZ Technology officially opened its new coatings facility in Athens, Alabama with a ribbon cutting luncheon. The 3200 sq ft facility expands existing 15,500 sq ft facility in nearby Huntsville, AL to accomodate much larger hardware to be coated.

AZ Technology’s coatings and materials processing capabilities include coatings development, formulation, testing and analysis in addition to the ability to create custom or tailored coatings to meet specific optical or electrical resistivity requirements.  AZ Technology also has material synthesis and processing facilities that allow us to effectively control material properties and quality to aid in meeting long term stability requirements for use in space and other harsh environments.

AZ Technology’s thick film capability is facilitated by state-of-the-art equipment. High volume, low pressure (HVLP) turbine type systems are used to deposit coatings onto components with complex geometry.  Our primary coating deposition facility is capable of handling components up to twelve square feet (3.6 m2) depending upon configuration.  This facility can maintain a controlled environment during deposition and cure with respect to particulate, temperature and humidity.

On October 29, 2008, AZ Technology Inc. officially opened its new facility in Athens, Al, making it the first aerospace company to do so. This new 3200 square foot facility is designed with large entry bays to accommodate hardware up to as much as 300 square feet (4 m X 7 m), again dependent on shape and configuration.  In addition, AZ Technology deposition facilities are equipped with all necessary equipment for formulating, compounding and testing coatings to ensure batch-to-batch consistency and quality in the final product.  To complement our well equipped deposition facilities, AZ Technology is staffed with expert personnel dedicated to quality.
