Mastermelt Aero is the worldwide leader and innovator in the recovery of platinum-aluminide coatings from turbine airfoils.
Mastermelt Aero specializes in the recovery of platinum coatings from HPT turbine airfoils. We operate a closed loop, proprietary, and environmentally friendly facility with state-of-the-art equipment and cutting-edge technology.
We service some of the largest Airlines, MRO’s and Manufacturers in the world with world class customer service and consistently outstanding results. We have processed nearly every available platinum coated HPT blade and vane on the market and even process thermal barrier coated (TBC) airfoils.
We source platinum coated blades and vanes worldwide from the aerospace and industrial gas turbine industries. We purchase platinum coated airfoils directly from Airlines, MRO facilities, Air Forces, Scrap Dealers and Brokers throughout the world and handle all logistics involved in getting the material from your location to ours.
All materials are processed in-house at our EPA-approved refinery located in Texas, USA.
We process all platinum coated blades including, but not limited to:
|General Electric||Rolls Royce|
|Pratt and Whitney||Solar Turbines|
A proprietary process is used to remove the Platinum bond coat with minimal damage done to the host alloy. Our process actually upgrades the host alloy by the removing most of the thermal barrier coatings that were on it when it was received in our facility. The final result is a blade or vane that is clean, dry, and ready for further preparation.
