LONG LIFE WITH NANOTECH
Nanocoatings are increasingly finding application in metal equipment requiring protection from corrosion, fatigue, wear, erosion and heat.
The key performance benefit nanocoatings provide is protection. This is of critical importance for the oil and gas industries. Their growth has refocused attention on efforts to reduce corrosion on the surfaces of pipes and equipment used in the industry. Up to 60 percent of piping maintenance costs are related to corrosion under insulation. New nanotechnology- based innovations will allow for a reduction in wasted energy loss can be recaptured, and prevent corrosion-related problems.
