Long Lasting Oil and Gas Components for Subsea Applications

Oil and gas components are exposed to harsh environments, both under the sea and underground. This exposure to such extreme levels of temperature, moisture and pressure can have a detrimental effect on these components in a short space of time.

Corrosion protection in Sub-Sea Environments

As specialists in the electroless nickel plating process, Nitec have worked tirelessly on developing the latest technology in corrosion resistant marine coatings.

 

Our specialists have developed and tested this revolutionary product, and we consider the coating to be a market leader within our industry.

SeaTEC 100 is our very own development and the perfect solution for corrosion protection and corrosion prevention in sub-sea environments. Not only will it protect mild steel from salt spray corrosion and marine corrosion for an unprecedented amount of time, SeaTEC effectively coats valves, pumps and pipe fittings to ensure that they remain intact and in operation.

Features of SeaTEC 100 Marine Corrosion Resistance

SeaTEC 100 effectively plates metal components, valves and connectors, making it a very cost effective way of extending the life of mild steel operating in subsea, marine environments.

This coating is great for increasing the strength of components. Materials tend to be at their weakest levels in areas where they have joins; therefore, components such as pipeline connectors are often vulnerable to corrosion. Corrosion at vital points such as these can mean failure of a system, so their longevity is essential to the overall lifespan of the system as a whole.

The Ideal Plating for Oil Rigs and Gas Pipes

SeaTEC 100 has also been through an extensive, independent testing process which has confirmed that the coating can withstand salt spray conditions for over 25,000 hours. This period of time is actually unprecedented in the industry, making SeaTEC100 a leading coating. This ability to extend the life of materials such as mild steel in marine environments means the downtime as a result of corroded parts is reduced or eliminated, saving money and time.

How to Stop Rust and Corrosion on Road Bikes and Mountain Bikes

So you’ve just invested in a great new bike and you’re looking forward to getting out there and seeing what it’s made of. Top notch road and mountain bikes don’t come cheap, so no doubt you’re keen to keep your bike in fantastic condition.

Protect your bike from the elements!

But getting out there on your bike means getting it dirty! You cycle through muddy puddles, squeeze past a prickly hedge or two on your off road adventure, and splash the frame with dirt and pebbles as you go.

What if there was a way to guarantee that your bike stayed scratch and rust free?

Here at NiTEC, we have found the answer! Having your bike frame electroless nickel plated is the perfect way to keep it rust, scratch and corrosion free, for a really affordable price. For just £185, you can have your steel or aluminium bike frame electroless nickel plated.

Not only does this look great, electroless nickel coatings are incredibly corrosion resistant and resistant to scratches, making them ideal for keeping your bike in fantastic condition for years to come.

Electroless nickel plated bike frames

To protect your road or mountain bike from rust, corrosion and scratches, all you have to do is send it to us. Simply dissemble it, leaving just the handlebars and frame, send it to us, and we will have it nickel plated for you in just 5 days.

To find out more about keeping your bike rust and scratch free for years to come, contact NiTEC today on 0845 224 3571 or email us at info@nitec-enp.co.uk

NiTEC’s Marine Coating Technology

NiTEC’s very own marine corrosion prevention technology, SeaTEC 100, is the ultimate solution to increasing the life of components used in subsea conditions.

SeaTEC 100’s superior marine corrosion resistance means that mild steel is protected from salt spray corrosion and marine corrosion for extensive periods of time, making it perfect for use on offshore platforms such as oil rigs.

Marine Corrosion Protection

SeaTEC 100 is an extremely cost effective coating.

Because it extends the life of materials in marine environments, such as mild steel, the downtime that would usually be caused by repair or replacement of corroded parts is reduced, or even avoided altogether.

This makes SeaTEC 100 an ideal plating for oil rigs and pipes used to transport oil and gas.

Features of SeaTEC 100

  • Effectively plates metal components, valves and connectors, making SeaTEC 100 a cost-effective way of extending the life of mild-steel operating in marine environments, the ultimate in marine corrosion prevention.
  • Effectively increases the strength of items such as pipeline connectors, where the material is at it’s weakest level.
  • SeaTEC 100 has been independently tested to withstand salt spray conditions and protect against marine corrosion for over 25,000 hours, a period of time that is unprecedented within the metal plating industry.
  • It is available in a range of colours.
