A few years ago, one of our founding team members observed the serious and widespread problem of iron and steel corrosion across all industries. So-called corrosion remedies offered widespread exaggerated protection claims and our initial inventor said: "There must be a better way to protect these metals and I'm going to figure it out!"
That commitment led to dedicated research and experimentation. A new technology emerged as a ductile, highly corrosion resistant, abrasion and impact resistant, electrical and thermal insulating cladding for iron and steel. One engineer referred to it as flexible, bullet-proof glass with a whole bunch of other goodies thrown in for good measure. The name Fused Armor was conceived.
On the 4th of July, 2006, Fused Armor was officially founded as a Delaware corporation while the experimentation continued. By this point, the Company could see the tremendous breadth of global uses for the Fused Armor technology and far beyond just corrosion protection. However, to dominate the world of industrial coatings (paints, epoxies, urethane, plating, galvanizing and so on), several additional innovations were required. Fused Armor is normally fused to metal in furnaces. This works well for many, many applications. To be truly universal, however, Fused Armor would also have to be applied to very large flat surfaces, such as ship hulls. In addition, for certain steels, Fused Armor would also have to be applied at lower temperatures to avoid exceeding the temperatures at which some steels begin to weaken. With a great deal of work, and far more than our fair share of divine insights, these problems were solved and even more patent-able technology was created.
Today, Fused Armor constitutes a vastly superior system for protecting and enhancing the performance of iron and steel. Fused Armor has been called "revolutionary", "breakthrough" and has even been characterized as one of this generation's "disruptive technologies." We are complimented by such commentary and believe history will show these to be accurate descriptions.
