Hardide secures approval from Leonardo Helicopters for its Hardide-A coating

Hardide plc (LON:HDD), the developer and provider of advanced surface coating technology, has announced that it has received full supplier approval from Leonardo Helicopters (“Leonardo”) for its Hardide-A coating to coat flying parts, and the first production order has been received for processing. Leonardo is one of the UK’s leading aerospace companies and one of the biggest suppliers of defence and security equipment to the UK Ministry of Defence.

The first parts to be coated are components used in the gearbox transmission systems of a particular class of helicopter and are part of an existing aircraft upgrade. The Company expects the approval to open up further opportunities within the Leonardo Group, based in Italy.

The Hardide-A coating was developed to meet the needs of the aerospace industry as an environmentally compliant alternative to Hard Chrome Plating. It has been qualified by several aerospace customers including Airbus, Lockheed Martin and Triumph Group.

Philip Kirkham, CEO, commented: “We are delighted to have secured approval from Leonardo Helicopters to coat flying parts after more than seven years of extensive testing of the coating. The first components have been received for processing and we look forward to a long and productive relationship with the Leonardo Group.”
