Alberta Research Council (ARC) has signed an agreement to license a composite ceramic coating technology to International Polymers Canada (IPC). Under the agreement, IPC will have exclusive worldwide rights to market the ceramic coating technology and to produce and sell coating products in the oil and gas, chemical, petrochemical, and mining industries. The technology, invented and developed by Florin Esanu, Ph.D., an ARC researcher, represents the next generation for metal protection against corrosion and erosion, which cause billions of dollars in material loss and equipment damage worldwide. "We are very excited about the potential of this technology," said John Zhou, Ph.D., manager, Advanced Materials, ARC. "Corrosion and erosion are costly issues in the petroleum industry. With IPC's experience as a coating applicator, our technology will reach the market quickly to address this very issue and contribute to the competitiveness of Alberta's energy industry."

For more information, contact IPC at (780) 465-3467, e-mail bobf@ipccoatings.com or visit http://www.int.polymer-can.com . ARC can be reached at (780) 450-5440 or e-mail zhou@arc.ab.ca .
