CVD Hard Coatings

Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) Tungsten Carbide Coatings have been used in the oil and gas industry for more than 15 years, protecting critical parts of down-hole tools, valves and pumps against wear, erosion and corrosion. The presentation will focus on the new developments in CVD coating technology, including:
Ultra-low temperature CVD coating for coating Duplex and Super-Duplex steel without affecting their mechanical properties and corrosion resistance.
Steam Turbine Blade Coating
Coating TSP diamonds
Key Aerospace applications developments
Sand Screen Mesh capabilities
