Toughmet copper nickel tin alloys for oil & gas
HIGH PERFORMANCE, HIGH STRENGTH ALLOYS RESIST CHLORIDE STRESS CORROSION CRACKING
The properties of Materion's high-strength, copper-nickel-tin ToughMet® 3 alloys provide many advantages in oil and gas applications including:
- Resists saltwater corrosion, hydrogen embrittlement and chloride stress corrosion cracking better than other copper alloys
- Shows low general weight loss in extreme chloride and high pH drilling fluids
- Resists moderate hydrogen sulfide environments at low pH
The oil and gas industry demands tough materials that stands up to the most rugged and complex environments in the world. Delays or accidents stemming from equipment wear, malfunction or failure can have severe implications, economically and environmentally. Reliability of critical equipment is an absolute necessity and requires the right material.
