There is exciting news about Rolls-Royce, a major aerospace organization headquartered in Indiana. They are one of the leading aerospace components manufacturers and is the second largest provider of aero-engine products in the defense industry. One of their facilities, Crosspointe, manufactures engine components for the Trent engine family and has recently awarded a contract with Praxair Surface Technologies. This 10-year contract will allow Praxair Surface Technologies to coat the rotating components in the jet engine which will aid with heat produced due to friction and will increase the part’s life. The Rolls-Royce engines will definitely benefit from Praxair’s abrasive coatings and allow their engines to perform better and require less maintenance.

Praxair is scheduled to start later this year around June or July, and will begin to use their Tribomet coating technology on the aerospace components. Many parts have a certain timeframe before they need to be replaced or maintained, and it can become a headache for an aircraft operator to not be able to fly an aircraft because of a faulty or worn-down part. As technology and research develops, companies like Praxair Surface Technologies will help lessen these unfortunate and unwanted moments and helps create a much smoother operational flow. Rolls-Royce engines are used all throughout the globe, and are used for many important military aircrafts. If these coatings help to keep these aircrafts in the air, then Rolls-Royce will benefit from this contract with Praxair. Furthermore, militaries and defense industries around the world will be able to keep their nations safer as these aircrafts perform more efficiently and effectively.
