Nycote Laboratories Q3 Newsletter - Original Nycote Laboraties Logo

Celebrating History

Nycote Laboratories Corporation USA is bringing back our first ever Nycote logo. Just over 60 years ago Nycote began its safety-focused, unique coating technology that ensured aerospace parts and electrical systems were safe from corrosion, friction, and wear.

We are proud to have partnered with the best airplane builders in the world. We keep that spirit alive by continuing to partner with OEMs worldwide on Next Generation Safety Coating Solutions.


The Many Uses of Nycote Coatings

While a number of you have been Nycote customers for decades, some of you may not be familiar with all of our applications. Nycote began in the 1960s and has a rich history of collaborating with OEM’s. As such, we have developed an extensive library of applications across our product range.

Nycote 4-11, our first product, was originally formulated to resist Skydrol because nylon is incredibly effective at protecting parts from chemical corrosion. Later Nycote was reformulated creating Nycote 7-11 and 88. We worked with engineers to customize coatings for corrosion prevention, electrical system protection, friction reduction and wear resistance.

Whether you’re protecting electrical systems, wire harness assemblies, radomes –oryou need to prevent corrosion of critical parts such as metal identification plates, fasteners, actuators, fuel containment or hydraulic systems – Nycote’s optimized highly cross-linked copolymer coating has you covered.

Nycote’s legacy use cases are numerous; but what else can they do? The uses for Nycote increase when engineers come to us with their unique challenges.Sometimes that means we reformulate our current coatings to their specifications.This is a process that allows for in-depth understanding of what our technology is capable of and pushes the boundaries of what our current coatings can do and become.
