A Targeted Approach

Since it was realized in 1823 that platinum could cause a reaction between hydrogen and oxygen at temperatures below their normal combustion temperature, the structure and behavior of surfaces has been the subject of widespread research impacting many different areas of engineering.

A surface can generally be thought of as an interface.  The interface can occur between two solids, two liquids, a solid and a liquid, a solid and a gas, or a liquid and a gas.

Material Interface, Inc. is dedicated to the development of superior products through improved surfaces, interfaces & coatings.  Our services are centered around surface analysis techniques and coating selection and design.  The optimum course of action is chosen after discussions regarding engineering and economic requirements.
