Nickel Plating Components for Rolls-Royce Oil and Gas Division

Electroless nickel plating is of course our speciality here at NiTEC. Our capacity for electroless nickel plating large parts cannot be matched in the UK. We were recently approached by Rolls-Royce with the prospect of electroless nickel plating a component for their oil and gas division.

Of course famous for making high quality cars, Rolls Royce are also world leaders in providing power
systems and services for use at sea, on land and in the air.

Rolls-Royce’s energy business supplies gas turbines, compressors and diesel power units to customers around the world and is a world leader in the supply of power for onshore and offshore oil and gas applications.

 

Operating in four major global market sectors, marine, energy, civil aerospace, and defense aerospace, we were of course delighted to help such a large and successful company.

Marine Coatings for Sub-Sea Corrosion Protection

In addition to the process of electroless nickel plating, Nitec also have experience and expertise in marine corrosion protection.

Our commitment to research and development has allowed us to create a new and exciting innovation within the engineering industry, SeaTEC100. Our marine coating is unprecedented within the industry for its fantastic corrosion resistance.

SeaTEC100 can withstand salt-spray conditions for at least 3 and a half years, providing corrosion resistance which will successfully extend the life of components and reduce maintenance costs. This revolutionary product has been developed and tested by our specialist team and protects mild steel from salt spray corrosion and marine corrosion for an extensive period of time, making it ideal for use in sub-sea conditions.

Marine Corrosion Protection

SeaTEC 100 marine corrosion protection is the perfect solution to increase the longevity of components used in subsea conditions. It effectively increases the strength of items such as pipeline connectors, where the material is at its weakest level. This product has been independently tested to withstand salt spray conditions for over 25,000 hours, a period of time that is unprecedented within the industry.

SeaTEC 100 effectively plates metal components, valves and connectors, making it a cost-effective way of extending the life of mild-steel operating in marine environments. It is also available in a variety of colours.

Using SeaTEC100 to extend the life of materials such as mild steel in marine environments is highly cost effective as it reduces (and in some cases avoids all together) downtime as a result of corroded parts. Therefore, SeaTEC100 is the ideal plating for oil rigs and pipes used to transport oil and gas.
