Yamaha Motor Company will present an exhibition on their surface treatment technology â€œSixONyâ€ 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 Yamahaâ€™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 Yamahaâ€™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.
