SilcoTek® is the world's leading provider of high performance coatings applied by chemical vapor deposition, or CVD.  We became a coatings company because we have a passion for helping people and businesses conquer their most difficult challenges.  By improving the surface properties of the materials they use, our customers can run their machines longer, manufacture complex products more efficiently, and continue to develop innovations that push the scientific and industrial world forward.  We don't sell any products because we're solely focused on seeing how far our coating technology and service can make our customers go.  Watch our video and see how SilcoTek can improve your products.

As a truly service-oriented organization, we emphasize Plus 1 customer service and employee satisfaction first.  Plus 1 means that every SilcoTek employee strives to exceed your expectations, whether you're asking technical questions, placing an order, or troubleshooting.  Equally important, we maintain a workplace culture where our employees enjoy coming to work as much as they enjoy going home at the end of the day.


We serve thousands of customers from several unique industries that have a major impact on the world today, including:

 Oil and gas exploration and production • Gas and liquid chromatography
• Refining  • Chemical manufacturing
• Automotive • Aerospace
• Semiconductor manufacturing • Bio, pharma, and clinical diagnostics
• Process analytical • And many more

SilcoTek's CVD coating technology was invented in 1987 at Restek® as a way to make metal chromatography columns, used for sensitive chemical analysis, inert (non-reactive) like glass.  Fast forward to 2009: Restek's coating division spins off to form SilcoTek, an independent company solely dedicated to providing groundbreaking coatings that solve real-world problems.

Thousands of companies call on SilcoTek to solve the most complex and challenging material problems that other treatments or materials cannot.  Our coatings offer the most chemically inert, corrosion resistant, and non-stick surfaces and can be applied to existing parts or components.  If you would like to speak with someone on our team - a technician, our Head Coach, or anyone else - please call +1 (814) 353-1778 or email SilcoD@SilcoTek.com.
