About Curtiss-Wright Surface Technologies

Curtiss-Wright Surface Technologies
At Curtiss-Wright, we offer our customers a single source solution and point of contact for all their controlled metal surface treatments, supporting their requirements through our global network of over 70 worldwide facilities and on-site field teams, improving and reducing turnaround times and costs.

We are metal surface improvement specialists; protecting a range of components from common failures and reducing maintenance costs for key industries such as aerospace, oil and gas, automotive, medical and general industrial markets.

Building on the unique heritage of Glenn Curtiss and the Wright brothers, Curtiss-Wright Surface Technologies has a long tradition of providing innovative, metal improvement solutions and building solid and trusted customer relationships.

Full quality and customer approvals including NADCAP, ISO9001:2015 and AS9100 Rev D.

Our Metal Surface Technology Treatment Services
Curtiss-Wright Surface Technologies offers a range of specialist metal surface treatments, protective coatings and processes for key industries.

We increase the performance and life of metal components by protecting them against premature failure due to fatigue, corrosion, stress corrosion cracking, fretting, friction and galling, as well as environmental and thermal variation using our high performance metal surface technology.

Surface treatments and the problems they solve:
  • Controlled Shot Peening
    Tensile stresses induced during welding, grinding, machining and heat treatment are replaced with beneficial compressive stresses proven to prevent fatigue and stress corrosion cracking.

  • Shot Peen Forming
    Creates curvature in aircraft wing skins to enhance lift and efficiency and to protect against fatigue. Also used to correct the distortion of components following manufacturing.

  • Laser Peening
    Laser peening induces compressive stress with precision accuracy into key areas of a component up to 5 to 10 times deeper than other conventional cold working techniques.

  • C.A.S.E Isotropic Superfinishing
    Removes surface asperities to create a mirror like finish, reducing macro and micro-pitting, oil temperature and noise whilst promoting lubricant retention.

  • Thermal Spray Coatings
    Wear resistant and barrier coatings such as HVOF, arc and flame spray, protecting against high temperatures, wear, corrosion and oxidation, as well as restoring parts to their original condition.

  • Engineered Coatings
    The correct coating system will improve part wear life and reduce maintenance costs. Protecting against environmental damage and corrosion. We can also develop coatings for new applications.

  • Parylene Conformal Coatings
    Parylene is a highly lubricious and ultra thin conformal coating with outstanding chemical, moisture and electrical barrier protection for metals, elastomers, electronics and plastic.

  • Wet Treatments (Anodising)
    Wet processing techniques improve atmospheric and chemical corrosive resistance and also enhance the application of paint primer and adhesives.

  • Material Analysis and Testing
    IMR Test Labs offer mechanical and metallurgical testing including material testing, failure analysis, chemical analysis and weld testing to ensure design and manufacturing integrity.

  • Onsite Services
    Specialist teams can be mobilised worldwide to repair large or fixed equipment, reducing shipping costs and downtime to the same specification as in-house processing.

  • Peentex Architectural Finishes
    PEENTEX protects internal and external cladding, street furniture and signage. Creates a decorative finish for architectural purposes on metal, glass, wood and acrylic. Non-slip textured finish for tooling and equipment.

  • Peenflex Protective Mouldings
    PEENFLEX damage and abrasion resistant mouldings protect parts through the various stages of processing, lifting, moving, storage and despatch. Uniquely made for each application.
Curtiss-Wright Surface Technologies understands the challenges faced by customers to reduce costs and turnaround times while making metal components and equipment last longer and perform more effectively.

Our quality of service is a high priority so we ensure that our controlled peening and component coating facilities are fully accredited to current industry and customer standards including NADCAP, ISO 9001:2008 and AS9100 Rev C.

Worldwide service
Curtiss-Wright Surface Technologies currently have over 70 international divisions with continued expansion within our customers’ own facilities or location close by, as well as dedicated field crews who can be mobilised worldwide to repair fixed or large equipment.

Technology leaders
Our metal improvement and component coating facilities use state of the art robotic equipment which has been designed and manufactured in-house specifically for our customers’ work.

We keep in the forefront of new materials and surface and coatings technology by maintaining strong links with industry associations and being actively involved in research and development projects.
