Being recognized with an Edison Award™ is one of the highest accolades a company can receive in the name of innovation and business success. The Edison Awards honor excellence in new product and service development, marketing, human-centered design and innovation.

Pennsylvania-based Victaulic, the world’s leading manufacturer of mechanical pipe joining solutions, has been selected as the 2016 Edison Awards Material Science bronze award winner for the BOGU Foundry Safety Coat. The category distinguishes Victaulic’s latest monumental achievement in applied technology innovation.

A collaboration with Toray Fluorofibers and Majestic Fire Apparel, this coat protects Victaulic foundry workers against molten metal splash, improves safety and, at 30% lighter than traditional foundry safety coats, offers greater comfort and breathability. As the world leader in mechanical pipe-joining solutions, Victaulic is not only dedicated to improving safety internally, but in sharing best practices and innovations with the manufacturing industry. For this reason, the safety coat is available for sale through Majestic so other molten metal foundries around the globe may benefit from this game-changing technology.
