including :
Improving the Wear Resistance and Surface
Hardness of Titanium and its alloys (Cobalt
Chrome, Nitinol, Stainless Steels, etc.)
Applying a Thermal Barrier Coating to
Titanium and its alloys with an adhesive layer to
prevent delamination. This also increases the
operating temperature.

Gerard Daniel Worldwide manufactures and
supplies specialist acoustic woven wire mesh
for Nacelle structures and trust reversers of
commercial aircraft. Noise emissions from
jet engines must be suppressed in order
that commercial aircraft comply with noise
regulations currently imposed upon operators. By
careful design it is possible to greatly reduce such
emissions by lining the nose cowl with sound
absorbing structures.

Early acoustic liners used for this purpose were


based on the Helmholz resonator principle.
However this type of liner is only satisfactory for
attenuating specific sound frequencies.

Main Company Contact


Michael Quigley
Managing Director
mquigley@gerarddaniel.com

It is possible to increase the efficiency of acoustic


liners by making them capable of attenuating
over a broad range of frequencies. This has been
achieved by bonding a porous woven wire mesh
to the perforated facing skin. Such a structure is
referred to as single layer linear acoustic liner.
The range of attenuation frequencies can be
further increased by producing a double layer
linear acoustic liner with a second layer of woven
wire mesh.

EnBIO
Additional Information
EnBIO is actively seeking partnerships to further
develop the technologies and the application
listed above for aerospace based applications.

EnBIO can enhance the properties of Titanium


(and other metals) by treating the surface
with dopants using novel surface modification
technology (CoBlastTM).
The technology has applications in the area
of medical implants and in the aerospace area
including :
Improving the Wear Resistance and Surface
Hardness of Titanium and its alloys (Cobalt
Chrome, Nitinol, Stainless Steels, etc.)
Applying a Thermal Barrier Coating to
Titanium and its alloys with an adhesive layer to
prevent delamination. This also increases the
operating temperature.
Making the surface of Titanium perfectly black
via the addition of black pigment directly into
the surface (for black body applications)

The CoBlast process is non-complex, at room


temperature and requires no wet chemistry.
The process is a novel variation of grit-blasting
and the CoBlast processing equipment. It is a
novel process for applying a range of dopant
materials to the surface of titanium alloys which
traditionally are very difficult to apply.
