Curing for Down-The-Hole Drilling: Part 2

Posted: Jul 18, 2018 | Categories: Out-of-Autoclave Composite Curing
Protective coating technology for oil and gas pipelines has come a long way since the first commercial oil well in 1859, when iron pipes only carried oil the short distance between drill holes to nearby tanks or refineries. Advances in technology led the drive to change from iron pipes to steel and helped industry professionals find better ways to install the pipe in the ground. Technological advances also improved the quality of pipeline coating formulations. Technology continues to improve pipeline coating quality. The application and maintenance of anticorrosion protection are important aspects in the manufacture, installation, and operation of pipelines. Coatings

We continue our series on products that require curing by stepping outside of your home and exploring another area dependent on curing. As you hop into your car and head to the gas station, you use more products that rely on curing during production – products supplied by the oil and gas industry. The oil and gas industry relies on pipes and other equipment to transport their products up and out of wells, to refineries, and to consumers. These pipes must be durable and capable of standing up to climate extremes, caustic fluids, and flammable substances. Pipes must also be

Like we mentioned in Part-1 of our Curing Process blog series, the curing process can help us avoid boring, time-consuming household tasks, such as ironing. Curing helps manufacturers create wrinkle-free shirts and other clothing that no longer requires ironing. The heat generated during the curing process causes the fibers of the shirt to expand and straighten, which makes the material resistant to wrinkling. Tableware manufacturers also use the curing process, as most ceramic cups take a trip through curing ovens. Curing the ceramic coatings improves the cup’s water repellency, increases the gloss, and improves resistance to chemicals and abrasions. Cup

Remember 20 years ago when we all had to iron our clothing each day or else it would be a wrinkled mess? What changed? The introduction of a chemical that could be cured into shirts, allowing us to hang up our wrinkle-free shirts directly out of the dryer and not have to worry about getting out the trusty ironing board. In fact, many of the items we use in our life have undergone curing, a process that makes products stronger, more durable, easier to use, and more appealing to the eye. Curing involves the application of just the right amount
