The team at SilcoTek would like to wish you and your family the happiest of holidays! And here's to a safe and profitable New Year!
I'm sure Santa and SilcoTek will do great things next year! If you'd like to learn about our inert and corrosion resistant coatings from an expert, follow us on LinkedIn. Or just contact us and we'll be happy to chat with you.
Our coating team is dedicated to creating a positive customer experience by helping our customers deliver the best product possible but since it's the holidays, we decided to ask the experts about how SilcoTek® coatings help Santa deliver the presents. Let's see how the experts do!
Marty: Jim Mattzela, tell us how Dursan® helps Santa's sleigh glide smoothly on all those roofs without getting a nick or scratch on the runners.
Jim: You're kidding me right? The physics of stopping a 25,000 lb sled driven by, smirk, reindeer would crush a roof and likely end in a sensational 6 o'clock news clip or YouTube video. It's impossible to land a flying sleigh on a roof, forget about coating the runners with Dursan.
Marty: Jim! What are you saying? Santa can do it! It seems like someone's got a bit too much coal from Santa. Oops... Let's not mention coal in Jim's stocking this year! On to Jesse, let's ask him a real zinger.
Jesse Bischof, tell us how our oxidation resistant coatings help keep Rudolph's nose so bright?
Jesse (staring): I have no words.... Where do I start... OK let's just start with the fact that you're talking about a flying reindeer. Reindeer can't fly.
Marty: Yes they can.
Jesse: No they can't
Nope!... A male reindeer weighs between 350 and 400 lbs. That critter would need a wing span of about 40 feet to maintain flight. And this just in, REINDEER DON'T HAVE WINGS! And forget about that red nose thing will ya! You're obsessed!
Marty: Says you.....
Jesse: I've got some real world tests to perform. And I'm taking a restraining order out on you next week.
Marty: I see you're still testing Rudolph's nose oxidation resistance, let's just give Jesse some space for say 12-16 months so he can decompress from all the holiday stress.
Look there's Min Yuan, another one of our crack R&D researchers. Min, slow down will ya, stop running away from me!
Min: Oh, hi Marty... I, err, didn't see you.
Marty: I'm the only other person in the room. Anyway, I bet you're excited to see Santa this year! With his new Silcolloy coated bells!
Min: That's not Santa... That's Chip, the UPS guy. He dresses like Santa every year. We coated his bells as a joke.
Marty: But I gave him my list....And he said "You been good?" to me.
Min: He says that to everybody. You're supposed to say I'm fine thank you. Not hand him a Christmas wish list!!!! What did you have on that list?
Marty: A Paw Patrol Ultimate Rescue Fire Truck. Boy I hope Santa thinks I've been nice this year!
Min: Nice isn't the word for it...
Marty: There's David Smith! Hey David I've been chatting with the R&D Team about how we coat parts for Santa and his Elves. I'm getting the feeling that R&D isn't on board with the idea that Santa even exists!
David: Well our R&D team really delivers for the customer. We continually improve our products and processes and develop new coatings so our customers can improve their products. We'd surely make a special coating for Santa. If he existed.
Marty: Santa exists!
David: That's why you're in Marketing.....

Happy Holidays from everyone at SilcoTek!
