Industry Applications


Hypersonix’s patented technology, initially developed at the University of Minnesota, produces a superior nanostructured coating. Due to its nanostructured nature, these films have outstanding mechanical properties that surpass other films on the market today.


  • Titanium Carbide

Coating Characteristics
  • Hardness: ≥ 30 GPa
  • Fracture Resistance: 3.17 MPa * m1/2
  • Particle Size: < 50 nm
  • Surface Roughness: 300 nm 1/2
  • Max Temperature: 2500 °C
  • Chemical and mechanical bonding for excellent adhesion
  • Resists Corrosion, Oxidation and Erosion

  • Machine Tools and Micro Machine Tool Industry
  • Oil and Gas Industry
  • Medical Industry
  • Aviation and Aerospace Industry
  • Power Generation
  • Industrial Equipment

Hypersonix is capable of producing coatings which are harder, denser, and more fracture resistant than standard silicon carbide, and most diamond-like coatings found in industrial tooling today.
