Prof. Dr. Detlev Stöver, a member of the Thermal Spray Hall of Fame and a world-recognized pioneer in thermal spray technology development and applications, has joined Allomet’s Board of Directors.

Before joining Allomet’s Board, Prof. Dr. Stöver was with Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH, Germany and before his retirement was a full professor and Chairman of Materials Synthesis and Processing at Ruhr University, Bochum, Germany.

Prof. Dr. Stöver has pioneered research primarily in the areas of plasma-spray thermal barrier coatings, heat resistant coatings for use in nuclear fusion reactors, development of diagnostic tools to improve coating performance, and advanced thermal spray coating processes, such as suspension plasma spray and LPPS-PVD.

Prof. Dr. Stöver is also a member of the German Welding Society programming committee, and has served as organizer, chairman, and plenary speaker at International Thermal Spray Conference, which selected him to the Thermal Spray Hall of Fame of ASM International for significant contributions in the area. He currently serves as a reviewer of papers for the Journal of Thermal Spray Technology.

“Allomet is extremely gratified that Prof. Dr. Detlev Stöver, a globally-known expert in thermal spray technologies, has joined our Board of Directors. His deep understanding and enthusiasm for our innovative EternAloy Tough-Coated Hard Powder (TCHP) products will add value for Allomet’s growing base of customers. He is a grand addition to our uniquely talented organization,” said Hannjörg Hereth, Allomet’s Chairman. “Prof. Dr. Stöver’s insights regarding new surface coating technologies and applications are invaluable. We could not be more pleased.”

Allomet Corporation designs, develops, and manufactures nano-engineered Tough-Coated Hard Powders (TCHP) that delivers unsurpassed combined hardness and toughness in high-value extreme wear resistance applications. It serves a wide range of industrial markets, including machine tool, wire forming, and surface coating applications in the aerospace, automotive, textile, mining, and petroleum and natural gas drilling segments.
