The North Carolina-based nano-coating application facility operated by nCoat’s wholly owned subsidiary High Performance Coatings, Inc. has achieved targeted operational efficiencies. Using protocols and systems designed with Six Sigma process focus and calculated for sustained increases in production capacity and product quality, the plant reportedly is now serving many high-volume OEM and individual customers.

HPC designed and constructed the production plant to match precise customer needs. The facility is designed for three primary functions: high efficiency, high volume, and superior quality control. Multiple manufacturing lines can be rapidly designed, engineered, and constructed for expansion to accommodate large OEM and targeted aftermarket applications. Automated systems ensure large OEM customers can be serviced on a quick turnaround basis. Additional key features incorporated into the plant design include state-of-the-art curing equipment, and production lines set up to run high-volume production up to three times faster and low-volume production two times faster than comparable facilities.

The new facility first opened in October 2006 and provides solutions for high heat management, extreme corrosion management, abrasion reduction, friction reduction, lubritic, appearance, and high bond strength coatings. The plant was designed to grow as customer needs expand and is capable of implementing up to five production lines as well as specialty coatings production for extreme heat management. HPC management further plans to install additional robotics for increased volume production as the company grows.
