Centre for Advanced Coating Technologies (CACT)

Based at the University of Toronto, the Centre for Advanced Coating Technologies (CACT) was established in 1998 as a collaborative effort by researchers from the departments of mechanical engineering and materials science. Today, CACT remains dedicated to both fundamental and applied research in the areas of industrial coatings application and plasma processing.

In addition to its extensive range of process diagnostic and coating characterization equipment, CACT works closely with industries, other universities, and research institutions.
