The Surface Engineers

Oil and gas

Oil and gas exploration and transportation yearns for ever more sophisticated technology. Yet the environment is rough in terms of temperatures and of present abrasive and corrosive media. The operating conditions result in a mixture of wear mechanisms like erosion, fretting, galling, and corrosion.

Tribobond™ wear resistant and low friction PVD, PACVD and Bernex™ CVD coatings are engineered to cope with these conditions and add a safety margin for reliable operation of equipment and components.

  • Seals
  • Bearings
  • Actuators
  • Tube couplings
  • Drill mechanisms

Variety of coating technologies

Ionbond’s broad portfolio of coating technologies provides the option to select the method suited for each situation. The complex shapes of components may require the use of a combination of PVD and CVD. The Bernex™ CVD process can be used to coat inner contours. Corrosive conditions may require duplex coatings that include electroplating.
