In many industries, including oil and gas, food and the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, coatings on valves help combat abrasive wear, prevent seizing and galling, decrease actuation forces and provide lubricant-free operation. Tribobond and IonbondCVD coatings are successfully implemented in many of these industries to protect valves of various types.

Examples of applications include:

  • Balls, seats, packing and stems of ball valves
  • Sealing surfaces of needle valves
  • Gates and stems of gate valves
