In 1904, the Concentrated Acetylene Company was formed. It was re-named Prest-O-Lite in 1906,making headlights for the world’s first automobiles. Work with acetylene would lead to the discovery of today’s surface coating technologies.
" "
Prest-O-Lite research and manufacturing operations move to Speedway, Indiana. The company was sold to Union Carbon & Carbide Corporation (1917) and established the Acetylene Research Division (1919). It would later become the Presto-O-Lite Linde Division (1947).
" "
The detonation gun process is patented (1952), leading to D-Gun and Super D-Gun™ coatings. Plasma coating technique (1957) and high-velocity oxy fuel (HVOF) follow. Business becomes the coating service department of Union Carbide (1967).
" "
Through the decades, global capabilities have expanded, including the development of a unique quality control process. Linde spun off the business, forming Praxair Surface Technologies (1992), which became vertically integrated. ASM recognizes Speedway Lab as a historic landmark (1999).
" "
Praxair and Linde merged in 2018, transforming Praxair Surface Technologies (PST) into Linde Advanced Material Technologies (AMT). Today, Linde AMT continues its legacy of innovation and constant improvement through surface coatings, additive manufacturing, sputtering targets, and cutting-edge coating equipment.
