CVD Announces Expansion Plans for Tantaline in US

a leading provider of chemical vapor deposition systems, announced today
that its CVD Materials Corporation subsidiary plans to open a US
facility for expansion of the corrosion resistant coating services
currently offered through its Tantaline CVD ApS subsidiary in Nordborg,
Denmark. Tantaline A/S was originally founded in 2007 as a spin off from
The Danfoss Group and is an established leader in the commercialization
of tantalum-treated parts for corrosion resistance. CVD acquired the
assets and IP of Tantaline A/S in December 2016 and established in
Nordborg a new and wholly-owned CVD subsidiary operating under the name
Tantaline CVD ApS (“Tantaline®”).

This innovative tantalum chemical vapor coating technology, called
Tantaline® treatment, is used to create a tantalum alloy surface on high
performance parts including valves, fittings, autoclaves, process
chambers, flow reactors, fasteners, mixers, flowmeters, and medical
devices, as well as other parts that are prone to corrosion in harsh
environments. A broad range of industries including chemical processing,
oil & gas, mining, pharmaceutical, and medical use these parts.
Tantaline® treated parts outperform most high priced specialty alloys
and perform nearly at the level of solid tantalum parts in hot corrosive
acidic environments (>150° C) such as those exposed to sulfuric, nitric,
and hydrochloric acids as part of their production process. Tantaline®
treatment therefore provides corrosion resistance at a much lower cost
than solid tantalum parts.

Leonard Rosenbaum, President and CEO stated “We are extremely pleased
with the pace of integration and early performance of Tantaline CVD ApS.
This planned expansion will further CVD’s corrosion resistant technology
and applications base and provide additional services and capabilities
to new and existing customers. We are now considering where in the US to
locate the new facility. Our equipment know-how and proven ability to
scale up deposition processes will be leveraged into offering high value
added materials, as well as our traditional products and services to our
current and new customers. This is the first step in our combined
organic and acquisition growth initiative for 2017.”
