We worked with aviation OEMs around the world to migrate special surface technology processes to locations close to overhaul and component repair shops to reduce downtime.

Our ExoProTM coating replaced hard chrome plating on a mud motor rotor, resulting in an improved life at an economical cost. Our solution provided the necessary protection to resist corrosion and wear, increasing the life from 1-2 runs to 3-4 runs.
Praxair Surface Technologies provided an HVOF coating solution for train axles that were wearing out. This coating offered lower thickness, better adhesion, lower porosity and a better surface finish compared to traditional repair with a wire deposition arc spray method.

Find out how SermaGard® coatings are protecting tension leg platforms from the corrosive effects of seawater on Moho Nord in the Republic of Congo.
Tungsten carbide coatings from Praxair Surface Technologies can improve scratch resistance over chrome plating and more than triple the service life of calender rolls used in plastics processing.
Solid particle erosion can be a big problem for coal-powered, steam-driven generators. You can protect parts in the steam path by having a protective chromium carbide coating applied to airfoil surfaces.
