• Eatonite Anti-Corrosion Laser Cladding

Eatonite anti-corrosion laser cladding is a high performance, field repairable, third-party certified, hydraulic cylinder rod coating designed for the most demanding fresh and salt water applications and harshest operating environments. Eatonite anti-corrosion laser cladding extends the life of hydraulic cylinders and reduces costs of unplanned maintenance and equipment downtime.

Eatonite laser cladding was the first anti-corrosion coating technology to earn the DNV certification (acc. DNV Report No. 2009-2935 – Guideline for Qualification of Wear and Corrosion Protection Surface Materials for Piston Rods).

Suitable for offshore deep water oil and petrol exploration and production, marine, civil engineering, wave power and other heavy duty applications, Eatonite anti-corrosion laser cladding can be applied to new cylinders or refurbished applications.


Product Features

  • Corrosion-resistance – Field tests have shown Eaton’s hydraulic cylinders protected with Eatonite laser cladding have been offshore/on rigs for more than 12  years without performance degradation in a salt water environments
  • Flexibility without cracking – Can be applied to cylinder rods up to 21 metres long without cracking and can withstand up to 180-degree bend
  • Cylinder impact resistance and wear – Hydraulic cylinders protected with Eatonite anti-corrosion laser cladding can withstand impact up to 24 foot pounds of force without cracking
  • Field repairable – Upgrade or repair damaged coatings on-site. Accidents happen and cylinder rods can be affected by swinging chains and falling or floating debris. Eatonite anti-corrosion laser cladding can be repaired using a conventional fusion welding processes on site, saving your operation time and money.
