Back in 2013 TheRingLord worked with MailleTec Industries and JPL Laboratories to create custom scales for a shield for the Mars Insight mission.
For our original post in 2013:
They will be used to shield a seismograph on the Mars Insight mission! (<-- I'm a scifi geek - LOVING this!) We worked with Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL - NASA) to design a small thin frost colored anodized aluminum scale. They are 42% lighter than our standard aluminum scales. We are selling the left overs - you can find them here as the current small scale special at the bottom of the page.
JPL then took those scales and anodized them to their specifications.
