1At The Forefront of Advanced Material Science & Technology Synthesis, Fabrication andSale of High Performance Specialty Components
2Simple Business Premise: Surmet CorporationFounded in 1982 On ASimple Business Premise:“Currently Used Materials Are Not Adequate To Meet The Challenges of Tomorrow’s Machines and Systems”
3Corporate MissionTo Provide Working Solutions that Translate intoSignificant Performance Advantage at a Reasonable CostWe are an Advanced Materials Solutions company. We invent solutions to your material related problems and we take Laboratory Inventions to the Production Floor
4Business PhilosophyWe Clearly Understand and Meet The Needs of Customers.We have total Commitment to Customers’ successWe Deliver unique and measurable performance advantage to customersWe Provide Solutions based on Advanced materials and Cost effective manufacturing process innovationsAt Surmet, we are at the Forefront of Advanced Material Science &Technology. We Synthesize, Fabricate and Sell High Performance Specialty Components
5Our Legacy BusinessWe developed innovative process and became the leading Manufacturer of Advanced Electrostatic Clamps to hold Silicon Wafers for Semi conductor Industry. These clamps are still the global standard without competitionWe also invented and became the leading supplier of Coated (UHP Silicon) machine Components for Micro-chip Processing Chambers. Contamination control, a constant ongoing concern, is the objective here.We also invented and developed a process to deposited thick (over one hundred microns thick) Amorphous Silicon surfacing for Space Mirror Applications. This silicon is amenable to single point diamond turning.
7Corporate Divestiture In order to focus on Optical Ceramics development, we executed a successful Corporate Divestiture in 2007We sold our highly profitable and thriving Semiconductor Division with thirty ex-employees to Publicly traded Entegris Inc.The divested Business Unit is flourishing with the new owners and Ours is the most Profitable Division in 2010 & 2011 for the acquirer.
8Our current Market Focus ALON® Armor which is more Effective than Glass Laminates at Half the weight. ALON® is the Top Choice for Light Weight Transparent Armor Applications. It is ready for large scale insertion in defense and civilian systems.We are also in ALON & Spinel IR precision Optics business (Domes & Reconnaissance Windows)We are also in Al N Thermal Management Products Business
9Surmet’s Specialty Optical Ceramics Surmet’s Specialty Optical Ceramics have Multi Industry Applications Potential, such as Military, Bio-medical, Chemical, Energy & Lighting, Semi-conductor among others.For lightweight poly crystalline Transparent ceramic Armor applications ALON® is the leading candidate.There are many advantages :Low Cost, High Quality ALON® Powder in tonnage quantities are synthesized at Surmet.Ultra high purity ALON powder is manufactured in-house using a robust and cost effective manufacturing process
10ALON and Spinel Are Made By Conventional Powder Processing Techniques OpticalFabricationPowderFormingHeat TreatmentALON is Being Produced By The Metric Ton
11ALON and Spinel Tri-Mode Seeker Domes for Joint Air to Ground Missile JAGMTri-Mode SeekerTri-Mode Seeker dome requires transmission at 1.06um, 3-5um, RFBaseline dome is monolithic ALON or Spinel- Surmet can produce both materialsSome fraction of domes require embedded metallic grids- Surmet is only company with mature technology to produce gridded domesSurmet’s ALON and Spinel domes have met stringent ppm level homogeneity requirement for JAGM
