We’re nominated for European Inventor Award 2022!

Prof. Nuria Espallargas and Dr. Fahmi Mubarok invented and patented ThermaSiC, which became the founding product for Seram Coatings.

Today they are finalists in the European Inventor Award 2022, and you can view their video to the right and read more at www.epo.org, where you can also vote for them in the popular prize.

Based on a groundbreaking invention by a highly recognized entrepreneur

ThermaSiC is based on groundbreaking R&D work supervised by Professor Nuria Espallargas at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU)

Nuria is a highly recognized entrepreneur who has won many prestigious awards, including:

Finalist at the EU prize for Women Innovators (2019)

Female Entrepeneur 2017 (Norway)

Young Innovator Award 2015 (Norway)

Among Norway’s Top 50 Women in Tech 2017 (Norway)

Finalist at the EU prize for Women Innovators (2019)

Nominated best communicator of NTNU at the “Kom Award NTNU 2015”

From this background, Seram Coatings established it’s factory pilot line in 2018 at Herøya Industrial Park, in Porsgrunn in Norway. The park has a long history of industrial endeavors, and is housing companies such as Hydro, Equinor and Yara.

Since then, production scale-up and customer qualifications have been the two major areas of focus. With the addition of a thermal spray booth on-site in 2022, we are now increasing customer activity, application and product development.
