More about the Contributor:
We first encountered Jeremy's Tokyo-based YouTubing in early 2014, and as he progressed, we became more and more interested in and appreciative of his quirky, funny, dare we say ‘French’ perspective (yeah, we dare). Jeremy has now returned to France where he continues reporting on Japanese culture. 
In his own words:

Here at AkihabaraNews, we’ve dedicated thousands of hours to bringing you the best Japanese robotics coverage on the internets.

Seavac has been researching the conventional coating technologies using TiN, Ti-Al, and CrN, and developed ZERO-I, a new coating that combines the advantages of all three.

"The hardness is about 3,500 HV. This coating is heat-resistant to over 1,000 degrees. Conventional Ti-Al coatings were heat-resistant to nearly 900 degrees, but this coating has even better heat resistance, and hardness as well."
