Extreme Coatings AustriaExtreme Coatings, a global supplier of wear-resistant coating solutions, has started the construction of a new manufacturing facility in Austria, where it will produce high-performance coatings for feedscrews in injection molding and extrusion applications. The company has established a European subsidiary—Extreme Coatings GmbH—and formed a partnership with an Austrian engineering services company to operate the facility.

The 15,000-sq.-ft. plant in Gmunden, Austria is slated to open by October and will expand Extreme Coatings’ global footprint which includes operations in India, South Korea, and Chile. This increased capacity in Europe will shorten lead times, reduce shipping costs and establish local supply for its growing European customer base.

“The market demand for our wear-resistant coatings has shown exponential growth in several key application areas for quite some time,” says Scott Caplan, executive vice-president, Extreme Coatings. “We’ve expanded our global footprint so we can break the logistical logjam that exists today and ensure stable supply to all key European regions.”


Extreme Coatings Europe continues to be a growing market for plastics manufacturing with feedscrew coatings playing a pivotal role in optimizing the performance of injection molding and extrusion machinery for production of automotive, household goods and building products. Extreme Coatings’ thermal spray technology applies wear- and corrosion-resistant CarbideX protective coatings made of tungsten or chromium carbide to virtually any new or repaired feedscrew. The process provides a crack- and porosity-free coating within thicknesses ranging from .004-in to .017-in per side and hardness values over 60HRc.

CarbideX Proline formulations deliver like-new performance and at least two to three times longer equipment life, according the the company.
