Springboard Organizes Surfx Technologies Demonstration


Juneau, Alaska (May 4, 2012) – Springboard recently organized a Surfx Technologies Demonstration for engineers at Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Cherry Point, North Carolina.

Roger Williams, Vice President - Sales from Surfx Technologies of Culver City, CA, conducted a demonstration of his company's atmospheric plasma technology for the benefit of engineers in the Materials Engineering Division at Cherry Point.  Mr. Williams demonstrated application of the Surfx process to composite materials and metals using Helium and Nitrogen based plasmas. 

Surfx and MCAS Cherry Point are evaluating a possible cooperative research and development agreement to develop atmospheric plasma cleaning processes for use on aircraft materials such as composites and metals.  In particular, the Navy is interested in evaluating how atmospheric plasma can be used to: (1) remove oxide from Nickel based alloys for braze welding applications, (2) conduct in situ treatment of metals such as Aluminum and Titanium, and (3) remove hydraulic fluid from composite surfaces on aircraft such as the V-22 Osprey.

Thanks to Dan Hubert of SpringBoard for initiating, arranging, and assisting with the demonstration.

As a partner of the US Department of Defense, SpringBoard's purpose is to develop partnerships that result in transfer, commercialization and transition of technologies developed by DoD laboratories and private industry, and support and facilitate K-16 educational programs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
