Company Summary

Hypersonic utilizes patented technology to produce the next generation of nanoparticle-based thin film coatings that are significantly harder, denser, more fracture resistant, and have a greatly increased bond to the base substrate. The result is less heat generation than standard Silicon Carbides, Titanium Carbides and most Diamond Like Carbon/Carbide coatings used in the industrial tooling and the coating industries today.
