Notes to Editors:


Hardide develops, manufactures and applies advanced-technology coatings of tungsten-carbide to a wide range of engineering components.  Its patented technology is unique in combining, in one material, a mix of toughness and resistance to abrasion, erosion and corrosion; together with the ability to coat accurately interior surfaces and complex shapes.  The material has been proven to offer dramatic improvements in component life; particularly when applied to components in very aggressive environments.  This results in cost savings through reduced downtime and increased operational efficiency.  Customers include leading companies in oil and gas exploration and production, valve and pump manufacturing, precision engineering and aerospace industries.
