The harsh marine atmosphere experienced by FPSO’s and production platforms is a fertile environment for composite materials to protect against the elements of high humidity and temperature. Salt water corrosion is especially aggressive at metal-to-metal contact points.
See how our products have solved corrosion issues for many major oil and gas companies below.
