ZPEX is a process designed specifically to protect against corrosion and abrasion in extreme environments, making it a perfect candidate for application in the oil and gas industry. Instead of using costly stainless steel or special overlays for pipes, pumps, valves, fittings, sucker rods, and more, ZPEX is a highly effective and cost-efficient metal coating process, often saving customers up to 70 percent of the cost of using pricier materials. ZPEX can tackle challenges in about 80 percent of the oil and gas industry, including upstream, midstream, downstream, production, and saltwater disposal. Parts treated with the ZPEX process are resistant to more than 120 chemicals — even carbonic acid, hydrochloric acid, and hydrogen sulfide — and are heat resistant up to 600 degrees. ZPEX extends the life of equipment and eliminates the need to frequently replace damaged parts.
