Diamondoid coatings derived from petroleum

Anti-corrosion coatings from Sub-One Technology are made from nanometer-sized carbon-based materials found in petroleum and developed by Chevron Technology Ventures (CTV).

Sub-One’s InnerArmor product line is available with molecular diamondoid coatings. When used to coat internal metal surfaces of pipes and other equipment, In-nerArmor coatings with diamondoids can extend part life by delivering very high hardness, low coefficient of friction and strong protection against corrosion and wear. “Increased equipment durability is important to many industries where parts are continuously exposed to harsh environments,” explained Andrew Tudhope, CEO of Sub-One Technology. “Combining the diamondoids developed by CTV with the durability, rigidity and heat resistance made possible by the InnerArmor deposition process creates protective coatings that can extend part life, improve flow performance and significantly reduce operating costs.”
