As a result of its research and development efforts for a new thermal protection material to test on the X-33 and X-34 supersonic aircraft, Ames Research Center invented the Protective Ceramic Coating Material (PCCM). Emisshield Inc. in Blacksburg, Virginia, licensed the technology and now provides more than 20 different products for hydrocarbon and chemical processing, power generation, metal production, glass making, and baking.
