EXPERTISE

We use skills developed from working for over 40 years in the motor racing industry. This knowledge enables us to manufacture high quality pieces with a clear clarity of form and design.

SUSTAINABILITY

Like many manufacturing companies the materials we use leaves a carbon footprint. To offset this footprint our products are made with recylable materials such as high grade aluminium and stainless steel.

IN-HOUSE MANUFACTURING

From start to finish going though a multitude of machining operations, then hand finishing operations as well as assembly, inspection and testing each pen requires 8 weeks to produce.

CARBON FIBRE

Carbon Fibre – are fibres about 5 to 10 microns in diameter and composed mostly of carbon atoms weaved together. It has a particularly high strength to weight ration and is used for motor racing car monocoques.

ADVANCED METALS

Aluminium Manganese alloy – is an alloy used in motor racing cars particularly for components that require a high strength to weight ratio enabling the cars to travel over 320 km/h (200mph) and exert g-forces of upto 6g. It has excellent corrosion resistance and the addition of manganese to the aluminium alters the grain structure to give added strength.

Stainless steel Molybdenum alloy (with a small percentage of Titanium) – is a grade of stainless steel that has excellent resistance to corrosion and excellent strength to weight properties. The grain structure also gives excellent toughness, even down to cryogenic temperatures.

CARBON COATING

Amorphic carbon coating of the pens require the components to be heated in a multi million pound machine that heats the component to 900°C (1650°F) and deposits a titanium carbon coating. The same coitng is used in racing car components to increase wear resistance.

CERAMIC LACQUER

Handfinishing of the ceramic lacquer requires a large amount of skill perfected over many years. Ceramic lacquer is also used to coat motor racing monocoques.
