MacDermid Enthone engineering coatings provide freedom of shape due to their perfect coating thickness distribution which offer the desirable fatigue strength high alloy stainless steels can’t deliver.
These deposits may contain up to 13% Phosphorus by weight and unlike normal electroplating processes, they are produced without any externally applied electric current.
Typically these applications use high phosphorus coatings of 25 to 75 μm (1 to 3 mils) thickness to achieve optimum corrosion resistance in aggressive brines, acids and gasses. These deposits have complete uniformity across the component, regardless of shape, size and complexity. Combined these properties make electroless nickel ideal for both onshore and offshore coatings on ferrous substrates. Additionally ANKOR hard chrome is also used in oil industry applications for its proven record of high hardness, excellent wear resistance and excellent lubricity.
- Corrosion resistance
- Wear resistance
- Thickness distribution
The harsh environment for offshore coatings such as down-hole and deep sea and onshore in applications such as Fracking require the most demanding corrosion resistant coatings. To achieve this our customers and the industry supply chain depend on our processes and experience. Common applications in this industry include valves, chokes, blowout preventers, mud pumps, sucker rod and submergible pumps, pipe, heat exchangers and separators, packers, safety valves, production tubing, and all types of down-hole tools.
