Appears in Print as: 'New Partnership Promotes Martial Eye Protection'
Angel 7 and PPG have partnered to provide military and law enforcement with powerful lens and durable coating technology.
Angel 7 Industries (San Antonio, Texas) announced it has partnered with with PPG
Angel 7 claims its i-RMR substrate is one of the world’s strongest lens technologies, with significant bulletproofing capabilities even when acting as transition lenses. PPG, in turn, will provide its PPG Hi-Gard lens coating solution, which the company claims is four to six times more abrasion resistant than uncoated lenses. PPG is also set to provide further product options involving coatings and materials.
Electrodeposition of Nanocrystalline Cobalt-Phosphorus Coatings as a Hard Chromium Alternative for Use in DoD Acquisition Programs
Electrolytic hard chromium plating (EHC) is a critical surface finishing technology that is used for applying functional coatings for corrosion and wear resistance to aircraft components in manufacturing operations and for re-build of worn or corroded components. However, EHC plating baths contain hexavalent chromium, which is a known carcinogen and environmental hazard. Therefore, the replacement of EHC in aircraft manufacturing activities and maintenance depots is a high priority for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD).
