Our customers invest millions of dollars in mission-critical steel assets that must remain operational. The oil, gas, medical, utility, chemical, and railroad industries rely on the patented technology of EonCoat every day. Downtime for maintenance is unacceptable. We are the only company that can offer both a quick return to service and the elimination of future maintenance.
Oil and Gas
It began with a coal handling facility in West Virginia in 2012. Consol Energy used EonCoat to stop the corrosion caused by the sulfur in coal. Soon after, an oil company began coating floating tank roofs. By 2018 Chevron did a presentation at the EuroCorr 2018 conference describing their use of this amazing technology. We have coated the exteriors, interiors, and roofs of storage tanks. We have worked in partnership with some of the world’s largest oil companies in countries all around the globe. Many of the contractors that work in oil refineries are EonCoat certified. Companies added EonCoat to their appropriate specifications, and we were continually awarded bigger projects. In 2018, we began coating offshore platforms. Watch this video to see what was said in EuroCorr 2018.
We didn’t initially expect many users in the medical industry, but 3 of our most prominent are customers are from this segment. Drug companies have utility assets just like other industries. Their tanks and piping might not be as large as the ones we coat in oil and gas, but they are every bit as important to the customer – and to us.

Natural Gas Pipelines are a vital piece of any country’s infrastructure and can stretch out for miles. However, because companies fabricate these pipelines from carbon steel, they automatically have corrosion issues. As a result, natural gas companies have asked us to coat their pipelines and equipment. Likewise, water & electric companies have had us coat some of their carbon steel assets like hydro dams, water pumps, and other related equipment.
Since the oil and gas industries are closely related to the petrochemical industry, the use of EonCoat in refineries led petrochemical companies to notice us. One of our petrochemical customers first used the EonCoat Weldable Primer to protect the bottom side of a welded tank. This application is continuing to grow in popularity.
The railroad industry demands long-term proof of success and safety before they are willing to risk passenger safety and shareholder financial loss. Back in 2012, a city transit company contacted us and asked us to spray EonCoat Corrosion Protection on a small number of railroad rails and fasteners. These seemingly insignificant test pieces were installed in the field and left for three years. Three years is the typical replacement rate for these same parts. When the railway company went back to see our test pieces, they could easily see no degradation. The same company subsequently conducted a much larger test. By 2020 we received our first major order from a railroad company. We are excited about the new business that this industry will bring us.
