DANBURY/ INDIANAPOLIS, US: Praxair Surface Technologies (PST), a subsidiary of Praxair Inc (PX) has been awarded a long-term contract by leading aero engine manufacturer Rolls-Royce.

Over the 10-year contract, PST will apply its Tribomet abrasive coatings to rotating components in jet engines of wide-body aircraft. The coatings help prevent frictional heating, increase fuel efficiency and extend component life. The project, which will begin in mid-2017, will be serviced from PST’s coating operations in Indianapolis and Weston-super-Mare, England.

“This is just the latest example of the type of long-term business relationships we develop with our customers that support their business growth in the US and around the world. It also further builds on PST’s long and successful history of serving the aerospace industry,” said Freddie Sarhan, vice president for the Americas at PST.

“We are very pleased to collaborate with Praxair Surface Technologies, a key supply chain partner, to expand our in-state relationships and contribute to the overall growth of the aerospace sector,” added Jeff McInerney, Rolls-Royce vice president of supply chain, Americas.
