Coating Solutions for Oil & Gas

At Coating Systems Inc. we have a product to solve your coating problems. If not, we will be happy to coordinate with you to develop a coating that will. Our partner, Whitford Corporation, offers the largest and most complete line of fluoropolymer coatings in the world. They’ve developed that we’ve had enormous success with called Xylan. Xylan is generally used to reduce friction, improve wear resistance, or for non-stick applications. Xylan coatings have also been used extensively in the automotive industry and for corrosion protection in the oil and gas industry. Xylan comes in a variety of different forms all designed for specific purposes and circumstances.

Oil & Gas Coating Applications

The oil industry faces huge challenges with salt water and chemical corrosion. Fluoropolymer coatings, particularly from the Xylan range, play a vital role on a global scale. Xylan protects key components in one of the harshest natural environments. Typical items are:

  • Fasteners
  • Stud Bolts
  • Nuts
  • Connectors
  • Bearings
  • Valves
  • Shafts
  • Pipework

Whether the application is an anti-corrosion coating, chemical corrosiveness, galvanic corrosion, reducing make-up torque, anti-galling, or color coding of sub-sea connectors, we have a wide range of solutions. Our coatings give unrivaled performance and allow the use of less exotic metals to create a major cost benefit.

Xylan Experiment Proves Its Efficacy

Watching paint rust might not sound like the most fun way to spend your time, but that’s exactly what Whitford Coating has been doing. Whitford installed a number of panels on the pier of the European Marine Energy Centre to be trial tested for their performance in the areas of corrosion inhibition over long periods of time. One of these plates and bolts, coated with Xylan, is still in pristine condition after two years. There is only so much you can do in a laboratory environment where you accelerate these tests, but there’s really nothing like the true-life environment to prove to people these products do what they claim.

Why Choose Coating Systems For Your Industrial Needs?

These real-life experiments are precisely what sets Coating Systems Inc. apart from our competitors. We can also apply wet coating, dry powder coating, or a sandblasting to your industrial products.
