Oil and Gas

When corrosion is not an option, the oil and gas industry can turn to Teslan®

Few environments on earth are as corrosive as those in which the global oil and gas industry works. From the sea floor foundations and ocean platforms to the burgeoning shale plays and all of the tens of thousands of rigs, pumps, trucks, tanks, plumbing and pipelines, Teslan can help protect steel surfaces from oxidation and reduce the dangers associated with corrosion and the cost of fighting rust.

Teslan protects many of the world’s oil and gas operations, including the third-largest refinery in the world, operated by SK Global in Ulsan, South Korea.

Extensive and ongoing testing proves Teslan’s patented nanotechnology two-coat primer-topcoat system outperforms conventional three-coat paint jobs for superior corrosion protection of steel. No matter when or where you need Teslan protection, we are able to deliver to your schedule and specifications.

Whether you have corrosion to deal with on offshore rigs, well-site surface production equipment or downhole tubular products, Teslan provides protection. Oil and gas operations must contend with salt water, production fluids, impact and abrasion and many other corrosion-inducing factors. Teslan testing continues to demonstrate superior performance in the most extreme oil and gas production environments.

Offshore production is particularly problematic – whether at the splash or tidal zones, topside, bottom side or immersion. Salt water and other corrosive compounds threaten steel’s strength and integrity. Teslan’s two-coat system is a formulation featuring carbon nanotubes and their unique mechanical, thermal and electrical properties. When applied to oil and gas production structures and equipment, Teslan forms a protective barrier that is stronger than conventional rust-resistant paints and exhibits self-healing characteristics to withstand impacts and abrasions. Teslan applies as easily as conventional coatings.

Oil and gas producers searching for solutions to reduce maintenance costs and minimize failure risks are turning to Teslan. If you have steel to protect, Teslan can get the job done while saving you dollars and time over the long haul.

Why is Teslan better?

Remember these two words: carbon nanotubes. They are the reason Teslan continues to test as the superior choice compared to conventional three-coat systems. Carbon nanotubes assemble into rope-like structures that create super durable protective coatings. Plus they are electrically charged and thus attracted to exposed metal to quickly and effectively fill voids created by scratches, impacts and other damaging actions. Carbon nanotubes are:

  • The strongest and stiffest material known
  • Stronger chemical bonds than those found in diamonds
  • Superior conductors – 1,000 X greater than copper
  • 50X more tensile strength than steel
  • Self-assemble into ropes that toughen the coating
  • Greener than traditional zinc rich systems and MIL-TDL 24441 systems
