Clariant and Starfire Systems, Inc. have announced a broad-based strategic alliance to develop new technology and applications in the field of nanostructured ceramic materials and coatings. Targeted industries include automotive, aerospace and microelectronics. Clariant has completed a financial investment in Starfire as part of the agreement. "High-performance ceramics have been sought by industry for a long time but have been too costly with current technology and manufacturing methods," said Hubert Liebe, head of New Business Development at Clariant. "We look forward to working with the Starfire team to offer a new generation of high-value products based on practical, high-performance, nanostructured ceramics and coatings."
