“We will be exhibiting with our sister company, Surface Technology, a global supplier of specialist engineering coatings for the oil and gas industry. Surface Technology has more than 40 years’ experience in the development and application of high performance surface treatments for a wide variety of applications, particularly within the oil and gas sectors in the UK and internationally.

“Our technical experts will be on hand throughout the exhibition to offer advice on specific industry issues, such as protection against corrosion, porosity wear and friction, as well as guidance on how to select the best solution for specific applications. Selecting the right surface treatment can have a significant impact on extending equipment life and can improve processes, reduce downtime and, in turn, operating costs, which is crucial when planning for the future.”
