Yamaha Motor Company To Hold Exhibition at German Trade Fair For Surface Treatment & Coating

Yamaha Motor Company will present an exhibition on their surface treatment technology “SixONy” at the O&S International Trade Fair for Surface Treatments and Coatings held in Stuttgart, Germany over 3 days from May 31 through June 2.

SixONy is Yamaha’s own original technology, the name being coined from the film it is made up of which is dozens of nanometers thick (Nano-Film) and is composed of an amorphous structure of silicon oxynitride (SiOxNy) ceramic membranes. With heat-resistant properties of up to 700 degrees Centigrade and barrier effects that resist against corrosion, oxidation, water, and chlorine, SixONy can be made in a number of different colors ranging from gold, blue, pink, and violet, and boasts its high heat-resistant properties as a colorless insulating membrane. This technology is currently used on Yamaha’s MT-09 series of sportbikes for exhaust pipes as well as on cocktail shakers and other non-Yamaha-produced items.

Over 300 organizations and corporations from over 30 countries around the world are planning to participate in the upcoming trade fair where many cutting-edge technologies for metal, plastic, and glass surface treatment as well as painting and plasma-based coating technologies will be introduced. However, the majority of technologies presented here will be those that have a wide range of applicability to a large amount of industrial products. Yamaha Motor Company will introduce their nano-membrane coating technology SixONy and present on its universal applicability to a range of different fields as well as its developability as a technology.
