Nycote has signed an exclusive distributor agreement with Pexa, a specialist distributor, for its high-technology surface coatings with the objective of enhancing safety and reducing maintenance costs for major aerospace providers around the globe

Nycote is a global leader in advanced coating technologies that increase asset lifespan, reduce maintenance costs and ensure safety for aircraft manufacturers. Their coatings are approved by major OEM’s such as Airbus, Boeing, and Embraer and are REACH compliant. Nycote is the only provider to combine the strength and flexibility of nylon with the hardness of epoxy, creating a clear, lightweight barrier that prevents corrosion and conductivity. Its one-coat, anti-corrosion products can be applied on an array of surfaces and can also be custom tinted.

This agreement with Pexa, the UK-based distributor of high-tech surface coatings, offers unrivaled expertise in the marketing, delivery and technical support of specialty surface coatings. As a result, Nycote can expand its market coverage and provide European customers with technical support and stock availability. Pexa’s field sales team are trained and qualified in the application of surface coatings providing technical advice and support to customers throughout Europe.

Nycote’s President, Marcie Simpson, said, “My aim is to offer our customers quality products and unrivalled customer service. Thanks to Pexa’s experience in high-performance coatings for the aerospace sector they can offer our customers the level of service and technical support they expect from Nycote. As always, Nycote continues to stand behind its products as this exciting partnership unfolds.”

Jim Rowbotham, Managing Director of Pexa added, “We have always had great respect for Nycote’s products. We have worked with Nycote in the Aerochemicals Alliance for several years, and when the time was right for Nycote to expand its business in Europe, we already had a great working relationship, which made partnering with Pexa an obvious choice.”
