United Protective Technologies (UPT) was founded around the concept of developing advanced surface modification techniques and products designed to extend the life and enhance the performance of a wide range of devices and components exposed to extreme environments. While UPT is a small business, it has been very successful in supporting sophisticated programs with both unique coatings, and materials expertise. UPT also designs and builds thin film deposition tools, allowing for both customization and standardization of thin film coatings and related processes.
