Coatings maker receives innovate UK cash

A North Tyneside-based surface engineering specialist has received funding from Innovate UK to work on research for the development of low-cost coatings.


Monitor Coatings is working alongside Cranfield University on the study, which started in September 2017.


The project will look into ways to make customisable coatings that can coat 3D geometries whilst protecting against high-temperature environments.


Dr Spyros Kamnis, research and development manager at Monitor Coatings, said: “I’m delighted that Innovate UK have been able to support this exciting project, and help our organisation to turn strategic plans into reality.


“The Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund aims to bring together the UK’s world leading research with business to meet the major industrial and societal challenges of our time.


“Monitor Coatings Ltd have ongoing, long-lasting collaboration with Cranfield University with outstanding return on productivity and performance by utilising the funds being available in a quality way.”
