Testimonials: American Airlines 

“Matergenics is a new name in the world of materials science and corrosion engineering but it also has a famous owner Dr. Mehrooz Zamanzadah or Dr. Zee. He has provided technical support and development to the aerospace industry for many years. My association with him has been through US Airways and American Airlines (the largest airline in the world).

Approximately 18 years ago Dr. Zee’s team won the approval from various engine manufacturers to establish an engine chip and oil filter analysis program that reduced engine in flight shut downs (IFSD) to zero and is being used today on the entire fleet at the New American Airlines.

His team over the years has provided failure analysis tech support that saved US Airways millions of dollars in warranty claim against OEM aircraft manufacturers.
His team was called upon by both the FAA and NTSB to provide analysis were quick and accurate answers were needed to solve aircraft equipment failure issues.

Dr.Zee’s has been a major technical contributor to the US Airways/American Airlines carbon filters for the air quality program, evaluation of fuel filter clog due to microbial influence, and corrosion due to MIC influence.

And the Matergenics lab with all of its NACE approval and talented engineers and technicians has been the Corrosion Lab for The New American Airlines.”Bernie

Yonkovitz, Failure Analyst, American Airlines, 2018

Testimonials: Valmont Industries
