Flamemaster began in 1942 with the Dyna-Therm Chemical Company, a research
and development firm in Culver City, California. Throughout the next several decades, Dyna-Therm developed an extensive line of products, including coatings for ablative and heat resistance for missile launch systems, some of which were used on vital programs such as the Minuteman and Blue Scout. The company also played a key role in the fledgling space exploration and rocket programs with NASA. Our coatings were used on the launch pad for the Saturn V – Apollo 11 rocket that took man to the moon in 1969; multiple products were also used on Titan IV-1 launches. Many of these tried-and-true products are still in use today.
Although high-tech coatings were the focus in the early years, the company began developing sealants for aerospace applications in the late 1950s. Sealants for fuel tanks, windshields, access doors, and faying surfaces soon went on the market as well as electrically resistive compounds. In 1973, the company changed its name to Flamemaster Corporation and in 2006, expanded into its current 54,000+ sq. ft. facility in Pacoima, California. In September of 2019, Flamemaster partnered with Socomore, headquartered in France. This partnership marks an important milestone for the company, providing a large platform to continue our growth and create innovative solutions for the aerospace sealant market.
