Nycote Laboratories produced its first batch of Nycote – Nylon based thin film protective coating – in 1959. Now it celebrates its 60th year of supplying high quality protective coatings to the aerospace industry around the world.

Pexa is Nycote's European distribution partner and joins it in celebrating this achievement.

As Nycote now looks to the future, Pexa has announced the launch of the latest generation of Nycote products ‘Nycote 99 EcoShield’.

This product delivers the same thin film Nylon/Epoxy combination with a more user-friendly formula, having a longer shelf life single component formulation and a reduced HSE footprint.

Product testing to date shows equal and better performance than the classic Nycote 7-11 and Nycote 88 formulas which are used on nearly every passenger jet aircraft made in Europe and the Americas.

Pexa is introducing Nycote 99 EcoShield to the European market and is supporting customers with their approval process, including sampling, arranging for product testing and application training.

Nycote products have many applications where protection from degradation, corrosion and environmental attack are required. Both metallic and non-metallic components can benefit from a thin layer of easy to apply coating.

Typical applications include bonding points, conformal electronics installations, identification markings, fasteners, sealants and protection of a wide range of other sensitive structures.

Pexa's Jim Rowbotham said: "We congratulate Nycote on their 60 years of continuous production of Nycote, it's a fabulous achievement. The way that Nycote holds up in service I am sure some of those items coated with Nycote in 1959 are still out there. This longevity gives us great confidence in the performance of Nycote 99 EcoShield as we introduce it to Europe."
