Components that are exposed to extremely corrosive environments such as on-board ships and dredgers are electroplated with an undercoat of low-stress Nickel, followed by the application of a layer of Hard Chrome. The dual layer offers high degree of corrosion protection which is particularly useful in corrosion protection of components that are exposed to marine environment.
Regularly plated oil & gas tools and equipment include:
- Down-hole tools
- Piston rods
- Detent mandrels
- Hydraulic rods for marine application
