Supply Chain Excellence -
accurate and reliable

The aerospace industry relies on high-performance suppliers who implement complex processes with the highest punctual reliability. For decades, this is exactly what the Aalberts surface treatment Group has stood for.

Together we are strong

Aalberts surface treatment, with its 19 factories, is the surface technology specialist within Aalberts Industries, a global player with 15,000 employees at 150 plants in more than 20 countries. The Aalberts surface treatment Group works closely with aerospace experienced French coating companies DEC and SGi, which also part of Aalberts Industries. All companies see themselves as quality service providers and ensure the highly functional finishing of components and component groups used worldwide by leading manufacturers of aircraft, helicopters, satellites, rockets and space stations.

  • KEPLA-COAT®-coated titanium fittings for the mirror cells of the IR telescope "SOFIA". The airborne Stratosphere Observatory for Infrared Astronomy SOFIA, jointly implemented by NASA and the German Aerospace Centre (DLR), gives astronomers access to astronomical observation in the infrared wavelength range. ©_NASA/SOFIA‘s Telescope.

  • Essential but barely noticed seat rails in passenger planes need a suitable surface treatment. A HART-COAT® variant (hard anodising variant) specially developed for the protection of seat rails for aircraft has shown good results in long series of tests in terms of corrosion protection and abrasion resistance. ©_firstflight / Germany, Munich, Bavaria, Passenger / Fotolia.com

  • Aircraft wing stabiliser bars are among the typical applications of the coatings at our factory in Kirkby-in-Ashfield, England. The component shown here has undergone three chemical treatments and has a painted surface.

  • Magnesium joints with MAGOXID-COAT® surface for satellite solar panel. The plasma chemical process MAGOXID-COAT® provides white, wear and corrosion resistant or black, strongly light-absorbing oxide ceramic layers on magnesium alloys.

Innovative. Punctual. Responsible.

Together we are strong: more than 1,000 highly qualified specialists, certified and fully documented production processes, modern plant technology, technology development partnership and, not least, on-time delivery (OTD) for optimal production scheduling of our market partners.

The IVD aluminium coating was originally developed by McDonnell Douglas as a replacement for the cadmium treatment of steel and titanium components. The IVD aluminium is used primarily for corrosion protection typically in the temperature range from 0 to 300° C. The coating can also serve to prevent bimetallic or galvanic corrosion. One aviation example is the coating of titanium fasteners with IVD aluminium to which aluminium assemblies are connected.
