Very few industries are more demanding than the defense, military and Homeland Security sectors. DCI Aerotech’s plating, coating, surface treatment and special processes play a strategic and critical role in maintaining the dependability and performance in highly sophisticated and specialized equipment used for the protection and security of the United States and its allies.

With defense equipment operating in severe and hostile environments, extraordinary demands are placed on the performance and dependability of this equipment. DCI Aerotech has worked with many of the defense, military, and Homeland Security’s largest primes and their suppliers to provide enhanced and specialized surface treatments options that provide the industry-leading standards for corrosion resistance, wear resistance, abrasion resistance, film adhesion, and lubricity.
