History: Adsil’s coatings and surface treatments have their origins in NASA research. Dr. John B. Schutt, a theoretical chem-
ist and former head of coatings for NASA, developed inorganic coatings for rockets and space vehicles to control corrosion
caused by extreme UV radiation and rocket exhaust gases. These coatings also were required to withstand high temperature                                                                              Corporate Headquarters

tion of inorganic, siloxane coatings. Dr. Schutt was inducted into the NASA Inventor’s Hall of Fame in 1995.                                                                                

Dr. Schutt is now the Senior Chemist for Adsil. The aforementioned work forms the basis of the company’s domestic &
international patents. Additional research is ongoing and further patents are pending.
