Metal Improvement Company (MIC) has over 60 years experience in global markets where the high performance of critical components is demanded.
MIC has facilities worldwide with 70 Divisions across 11 different Countries specialising in high quality surface technologies to improve performance and extend the life of critical components. Through our dedicated teams MIC is also able to provide on-site processing worldwide.
MIC operates in a range of markets, including but not limited to:
Where high performance from lightweight materials is demanded, MIC's surface treatments can extend these performance characteristics by protecting the surface from external damage and extending the cyclic performance.
MIC's surface treatments enable the automotive industry to utilise cost effective, high performance materials capable of withstanding high and variable loads.
MIC's high quality, precision surface treatments improve the surface properties of medical components by protecting the surface from the corrosive environment and high load conditions of the human body, improving biocompatibility and extending component life.
MIC's surface treatments are widely used in the chemical processing industry to solve the problems of stress corrosion cracking (SCC), corrosion fatigue, fatigue, intergranular corrosion and galling.
MIC's processes are used to improve the performance of steam and gas turbine engines, auxiliary parts and equipment and also to reduce the effects of failure modes such as erosion, fretting, fretting fatigue, fatigue and stress corrosion cracking (SCC), particularly in hostile and corrosive environments.
Oil, Gas and Mining
The oil, gas and mining industries use MIC's processes to control wear, provide damage tolerance and galling resistance and will provide solutions for stress corrosion and sulphide cracking (SSC) and fatigue particularly in harsh and hostile environments.
Surface treatments offered by MIC extend the performance characteristics of component parts by protecting the surface from operating damage and cyclic loads.
Are your components . . .
- suffering from fatigue?
- cracking under pressure?
- looking worse for wear?
