General Magnaplate is one slick, out-of-this-world company. Magnaplate makes coatings that increase the performance of metals. Every NASA vehicle sent into space has had parts coated by Magnaplate. The company's products include HI-T-LUBE (a Guinness record holder as the most slippery solid in the world), TUFRAM coating (used to machine aluminum), and other basic metal coatings used by the food processing, packaging, electronics, aerospace, and other industries. These coatings significantly increase the durability and lubricity of both ferrous and nonferrous metals. General Magnaplate is controlled by the family of its founder, the late Charles Covino, including his daughter, CEO Candida Aversenti.
