Oil and gas
Tough. Resistant. Efficient.
The petroleum and chemical process industries require efficient, reliable, and durable electroless plated finishes including nickel-phosphorus alloy, diffused nickel, and composite coatings. With a rich history of delivering innovative solutions to the global oil and gas industry, MacDermid Enthone is your partner for onshore and offshore applications.
Offshore & onshore operations
Common applications in this industry include valves, chokes, blowout preventers, mud pumps, sucker rods, submergible pumps, pipes, heat exchangers and separators, packers, safety valves, production tubing, and all types of down-hole tools.
MacDermid Offshore Solutions
MacDermid Offshore Solutions provides products and services for the offshore industry. Coupled with our unmatched technical support, we help to ensure that components will last their intended field life. We have a deep understanding of the interdisciplinary needs and the complex interactions of the industry, supply chain, and supporting technologies.
- Wear resistant coatings
MacDermid Enthone surface finishing solutions deliver freedom of shape through perfect coating thickness distribution, offering the desirable fatigue strength that high alloy stainless steel solutions can’t deliver.
These deposits may contain up to 13% phosphorus by weight and, unlike typical 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) thicknesses 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. These properties make electroless nickel ideal for both onshore and offshore coatings on ferrous substrates.
With a full portfolio of electroless nickel technologies, we are developing industry-leading solutions that deliver unmatched protection and wear resistance, while reducing operational costs.
ANKOR hard chrome is used in oil & gas applications for its proven record of high hardness, excellent wear resistance, and unmatched lubricity.
- Zinc & zinc alloys
Zinc-based coatings remain the most cost-effective and widely available coatings for steel substrates. Our zinc-nickel alloy coatings are commonly used to maximize the operating life of steel substrate engineering components used in energy production, storage, and distribution.
