Since this website went online in May 1998, we have had a steady stream of requests for information and advice from around the world. In a number of cases, these contacts resulted in contracts to perform spraying applications in countries outside of New Zealand. In response to this obvious demand we established MSS Worldwide, offering a unique combination of skills and experience together with a formidable equipment base.

MSS Worldwide combines our own extensive knowledge of Metal Spraying applications (gathered over the last twenty five years) with the analytical expertise of the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering at the University of Auckland and the practical experience and equipment base of some of New Zealand's leading specialised Metal Spraying companies.

The Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering offers expertise and access to advanced analytical equipment for quality assessment and the development and optimisation of metal spray coatings.
