ZeCoat Corporation specializes in durable protected silver coatings, multi-layer dielectric coatings, silicon cladding for optical finishing, and research and development of advanced coatings.

ZeCoat applies precision optical coatings on substrates up to  2.3-meters in diameter. ZeCoat's measurement services include reflectance and transmission from 200-nm to 2500-nm, profilometry, and optical density.  


ZeCoat Corporation congratulates NASA on the succesful landing of the InSight probe on Mars! We are proud to have been a part of the mission by applying the thermal control coating to the inside and outside of the seismometer cover. The outside was roughened to prevent solar glint from blinding the cameras. (November 2018)





ZeCoat Corporation, in collaboration with NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and The Jet Propulsion Laboratory, is awarded a NASA ROSES Astrophysics Research and Analysis (APRA) grant to develop FUV coatings for space-based telescopes. (August 2018)
