New Hardband for Drill Pipe Tool Joint from NanoSteel

The NanoSteel® Company, a leader in coating technologies, today announced the launch of its Guardian™ CF hardband for application on drill pipe tool joints.

In response to changing industry needs, Guardian™ CF was designed to provide the characteristics of being a crack free material, which can be welded over other hardbands. In addition, while providing the ability to be open-arc welded, it also improves upon the outstanding casing wear and tool joint protection of its predecessor Guardian™ HB.

“Guardian™ CF will appeal to all stakeholders involved in hardbanding,” said Dave Paratore, president and CEO. “For example, oil companies will benefit from the outstanding casing protection, while drill pipe owners will value the outstanding tool joint protection. Moreover, applicators will enjoy the crack free, weld-over and open-arc capabilities of the product. In addition, we’ve engineered Guardian™ CF to provide exceptional value by being available at one of the lowest price points in the industry.”
