Functional coatings for the defense industry

Mueller Corporation’s founder, Walter W. Mueller, began the company after designing and installing vacuum equipment, some of which provided optical coatings for the military. Since then, we’ve built upon our reputation for quality, service, and innovation that has made us an established name in the aerospace & defense industry.

We’ve served the industry for more than 60 years, and our in-house experts have extensive industry-specific experience. Leading aerospace & defense companies— including Raytheon, UTC Aerospace Systems, Astronics, BAE, L3, Lockheed Martin, Aerojet Rocketdyne and more —depend on us to meet their demanding requirements for manufacturing cost, product quality, industry certification, and material properties.

Our precision coating solutions used in the aerospace & defense industry include:

  • Vacuum Metalizing and Sputtering EMI/RFI shielding utilizing aluminum, copper, stainless steel, and Conductive Painting.
  • Highly reflective coatings for light reflectors
  • Functional coating solutions, including heat shielding, vapor barriers, PTFE coatings, ceramic coatings and more

Since our company’s founding, we’ve served customers who are working on important aerospace & defense projects to meet the needs of the U.S. Armed Services. We fully appreciate the importance of keeping these sensitive and important technologies out of the wrong hands. The U.S. government enacted the International Traffic in Arms Regulation (ITAR) in 1976 to control the export of defense-related parts. We are proud to follow these guidelines for our defense clients, because we take our role in helping to safeguard U.S. national security extremely seriously.

In addition, our AS9100D:2016 certification demonstrates that we employ the AS9100D quality management system and apply the best practices of the aerospace industry on every operational level. Meeting the quality coating standards of some of the biggest players in the industry is of the utmost importance to us. Our internal quality standards and process improvement practices ensure that we deliver maximum quality and efficiency for our customers. We stand behind our hard-earned reputation for reliably delivering on time while meeting the stringent specifications and requirements of AS9100.

Our customers have grown to trust us as a valued partner because we go the extra mile to provide an excellent customer experience every single time, and we prioritize our own process improvement. Part of our mission to stay up to date with the latest technologies and industry innovations so that we can be valuable partners by putting this expertise to work for you.
