Extend the life of mild steel with SeaTEC100

Since 1978, NiTEC have been committed to research and development in the field of metal plating.  In recent years, we have developed a new and exciting innovation within the engineering industry, SeaTEC100.

SeaTEC100 can extend the life of mild steel operating in marine environments. It is also a very cost effective way of doing so. Developed and tested by our specialist team at NiTEC, this product is able to protect mild steel from salt spray corrosion for an unprecedented length of time.

Perfect for use in sub-sea conditions, SeaTEC100 increases the strength of items such as pipeline connectors, where the material is at its weakest level.

Mild steel in marine environments

SeaTEC100 can effectively plate metal components, valves and connectors, making it a cost-effective and efficient way of extending the life of mild-steel used in marine environments. It is also the ideal plating for oil rigs and pipes used to transport oil and gas. SeaTEC100 has also been tested to withstand salt spray conditions for over 25,000 hours, longer than any other coating has been tested for within the industry with positive results.

NiTEC are Sustaining Members of the Institute of Materials Finishing

NiTEC are pleased to announce that we are now Sustaining Members of the Institute of Metal Finishing.

The Institute of Metal Finishing is an internationally recognised body with expert knowledge on all areas of metal finishing, coating and surface engineering technologies.

It’s great to have access to the services and benefits that the Institute offers, and in turn be able to add value to our own services, the benefits of which we can pass on to our customers.

 

As a Sustaining Member, NiTEC have the privilege of receiving up to the minute information on the latest technical developments in the sector, and get all the latest information about forthcoming legislation on health, safety and environmental issues, as well as events of interest to the metal finishing industry.

NiTEC also now have access to the latest technical information through the Institute of Materials Finishing journal transactions and its newsletter IMFormation, and we also have access to the technical inquiry service which engages us in contact with industry experts and consultants.

We also have the opportunity to enroll our staff on further Education and Training courses, ranging from basic surface finishing theory and practice, to those leading to nationally recognised qualifications.

NiTEC’s Sustaining Membership of the Institute ensures we are making a positive commitment to the long term sustainability of the industry as well as ensuring that the views of our industry are presented to Government and to the EU. Our membership also supports the recognition of metal finishing and surface engineering as important sectors of manufacturing in UKPLC.

Here at NiTEC, we have over 30 years experience specialising in the electroless nickel plating process, and we have developed a comprehensive range of metal finishing processes and techniques. Our equipment and experience enable us to process all ferrous substrates, including plating stainless steelcopper and its alloys, and aluminium alloys.
