Cirrus Dopant™

Cirrus Dopant™ is a drop-in liquid, nanoparticle additive for deposited coatings that enhances the performance and durability of the surface.

Cirrus Dopant™ is a drop-in liquid, nanoparticle additive for deposited coatings that enhances the performance and durability of the surface.

Nanocomposite coatings are known for improved mechanical performance and reduced porosity.  Cirrus Dopant™ is process drop-in additive that introduces a ceramic phase secondary particle to a plating bath. No powder-mixing is required, nor handling of nano-particle materials. The stable nanoparticles uniformly co-deposit into the developing metal coating as it is created producing a true nanocomposite coating.

Aerospace & Defence applications

Delivering nano-reinforced materials for extreme conditions.

Cirrus Dopant™ is a nanoparticle library of more than 20 patented, non-toxic additives for an array of electrodeposited coatings.  We are the only firm world-wide that can stabilize nanoparticles in an electrolyte with a simple drop-in additive.

Consumer Electronics

Cirrus Dopant™ provides a harder wearing gold plating with improved wear resistance offering the opportunity for reduced gold use.

Cirrus Dopant™ is a drop-in additive to the plating bath that produces a composite metal-ceramic matrix coating with enhanced functionality.

Sustainability considerations are leading to demand for reduced toxic materials, better recycling, and reduced energy-use in production.

Energy

Cirrus Dopant™ coatings allow nano-composite alloys that provide increased efficiency and reduced scale.

Cirrus Dopant™ unlocks a wider range of materials that can be used.

Requires fewer coating steps.

Allows a nano-composite alloy coating to substitute for materials that require a toxic production process.

Heavy Industry

Sustainable long-term performance.

Cirrus Dopant™ for ENiP (Electroless Nickel Phosphorous) is a sustainable replacement option for hard chrome.  A simple, low cost transition, Cirrus Dopant™ is a “drop-in” alumina additive to a standard plating bath that produces a nano-composite coating.

Cirrus Dopant technology is a liquid additive for plated metal coatings that further strengthens the surface coating.
