Texers can supply a broad range of ceramic coatings. These coatings are often used on metal components as barrier materials to enhance their functional properties such as corrosion resistance and wear resistance particularly under severely elevated temperatures. One of the applications for ceramic coatings is in Oil and gas exploration in order to prevent expensive downtime due to corrosion and wear, e.g. down-hole tools, mud rotors, pump sleeves, MWD equipment, valve components. Another common application is in exhausts where they provide maximum thermal insulation. While acting as a thermal barrier, they also are applied to protect vulnerable components located close to the exhaust leading to improved engine performance and reliability.
