St. Petersburg, Florida. Since 1995 Extreme Coatings has offered tungsten carbide coatings to the plastics and rubber industries to extend the life of equipment. "We took a technology with promise, high velocity thermal spray, and adapted it to high wear problems in the plastics industry. We have surpassed 10,000 feedscrews coated so I guess the technology is working well!" said Curt Kadau, company President.
"I am really excited about new opportunities in the Oil and Gas downhole drilling and hydraulic fracturing industry segments where our coating expertise offers a lot of value. Replacing chrome plating with our proprietary carbide coatings significantly increases the life of mud rotors by decreasing the rate of wear caused by fluid cutting. This chrome plating replacement (CPR) also gives our customers the ability to utilize their assets (mud rotors) in high chloride environments where chrome plating does not hold up."
"We are also proud to introduce our mirror polished surface finish that will increase stator life and in turn decrease fleet owners cost per rotating hour. The result is higher productivity and profitability for this industry."
Mr. Kadau and Sean Litton, Product Manager for Oil & Gas recently attended the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston. "We met with many of our present customers and shared with others the benefits of our coating technology and our mirror surface finish. The surface finish we can provide on mud rotors really turned a lot of heads at the OTC," said Mr. Litton.
Extreme Coatings also launches a newly redesigned website. The new site is more usable with a clean and simple design which includes many user-friendly features.
