Tool Joint Compatibility

Armacor’s extremely low carbon content ensures its compatibility with the tool joint. Non-uniform, high angle welds have the potential for generating high, frictional heat. >> Find Out More


Nanocrystalline/amorphous alloy coatings are the foundation for Armacor products. They form a structure very different from crystalline alloy coatings used by other similar products. In the amorphous structure, atoms are randomly placed in a continuous coating, preventing corrosion-path grain boundaries. Armacor’s low coefficient of friction amorphous metals:

  • Deliver superior wear resistance from abrasive particles in metal-to-metal contact conditions
  • Provide excellent non work-hardening machineability and outstanding resistance to cavitation
  • Offer improved corrosion resistance to oxidation and sulfidation reactions at elevated temperatures
