THERMAL COATING

Aquamarine’s first class HVOF thermal coating solution unlocks greater efficiencies within the drilling, subsea and marine sectors. Reducing costs and providing lifetime extensions.

We have more than 30 years of experience in helping our clients reduce operational cost and increase their products lifetime within both new production and repair-work.

Instead of purchasing new equipment, the Aquamarine HVOF Thermal Coating Solution makes it possible to repair and re-certify, delivering value, reliability and complete peace of mind.

Aquamarine’s advanced thermal sprayed coatings will improve performance in a wide variety of applications.

Our unique treatment, suitable for both repair and new products, extends equipment lifecycles and reduces overall costs. Instead of purchasing new equipment the Aquamarine HVOF Thermal Coating Solution makes it possible to repair and re-certify, delivering value, reliability and complete peace of mind.

Our Clients operate within the Oil&Gas and Maritime industries as well as shorebased industries.

Advancing innovation, delivering results

Critical components demand enhanced protection. To deliver optimum operational running time, achieving optimal wear resistance is essential. Aquamarine has the answer.

Ceramic-metallic coatings, deposited by HVOF spraying, help fight wear like erosion. Aquamarine has been at the vanguard of this technology for the past 30 years – developing practical solutions, proven expertise, and a track record of documented success.

We help our customers analyse their equipment and operations, delivering expert advice and solutions that extend critical component lifetime, both for new products and the repair of existing ones.

Through our involvement in a number of international scientific development projects, and our dedication to a continual process of improvement, Aquamarine is committed to advancing standards within this important material technology arena.
