Tungsten Carbide & Other Thermal Spray Powders

Thermal spray is a vital tool used in the oil and gas industry.  Whether it is drilling, completion, or production, on or offshore, or subsea, thermal spray serves as an invaluable tool to oil production. Decades of research and development have been invested in thermal spray processes to successfully hardface and protect against abrasion, corrosion, chemical attack, and wear under extreme pressures.Thermal spray enhanced components provide significant cost savings in performance and durability with increased uptime and maximum oil recovery.
