ST Kinetics and NTU set up Southeast Asia's first cold spray research center
Date:9/8/2008

Singapore, 5 September 2008 - Singapore Technologies Kinetics Ltd's (ST Kinetics) joint venture company, Advanced Technology Research Centre (ATREC), and Nanyang Technological University (NTU) today officially opened Southeast Asia's first research and development centre in Cold Spray technology. The Cold Spray Research Centre (CSRC) which serves to advance the knowledge and application of the leading-edge technology was opened by Professor Bertil Andersson, Provost of NTU.

Through the combined strengths of ST Kinetics and NTU, this research collaboration aims to use the cold spraying platform to spin off niche industry applications for Singapore, specifically, new bio-nano-technologies for defence and biomedical applications such as anti-microbial coatings and smart devices.

Unlike conventional coating processes that require sprayed materials to be preheated, cold-spray processes are typically carried out at ambient room temperatures and utilising high speed spray to achieve metallurgical bonding. This eliminates undesirable chemical changes caused by conventional techniques. Additionally, cold-sprayed materials display higher densities and thermal and electrical conductivities that are preferred. The cold spray method can potentially be applied across a wide range of industries including aerospace, biomedical, oil & gas, automotive and chemical.

The CSRC was conceptualised between ST Kinetics and NTU in late 2006 and started operation in July 2007 to spearhead cold spray research in Singapore. Significant progress has since been achieved in the understanding and application of the technology. Specific studies carried out to date include wear resistant (WC-Co) coating application by ST Kinetics and anti-bacterial (Al/ZnO) coating by NTU researchers.

"Research and development in advanced technologies is a key component to building innovative solutions for our customers. ST Kinetics is proud to have this opportunity to collab
