Ferox coatings are an epoxy/novolac thick film coating based on polymer chemistry designed for multiple oil and gas field applications. The coatings are developed by Vulcan Labs for use as an internal tubular coating and are currently being manufactured exclusively by Vulcan Labs. These epoxy coatings and primer are specifically designed to provide the highest level of wear resistance possible while maintaining high temperature performance and chemical resistance. In addition, we offer outside diameter coatings for specific applications.
All Vulcan Lab’s coatings are designed to extend tubing life as well as provide increased flow rates due to the improved hydraulic efficiency of the smooth, coated surface. The Ferox coating with a primer base coat is applied to the tubular to create a corrosion resistant and high temperature performance to form a 100% holiday free coating. The coatings are applied using Vulcan Lab’s quality application process. The tubular is first inspected and then media blasted using steel grit, to a NACE No. 1/SA3 white metal finish. The primer is applied next and then heated before applying the Ferox coating to the tubular. The “J” area of the coupling and the beveled face on the pin end are also coated. To complete the process, the tubular is heated once more to fully cure and crosslink the two layers together.
Ferox coatings are applied 7-16 mils thick and are rated to 250-300°F (121-150°C). The coatings are designed to withstand pressures to the yield strength of the tubular and is primarily intended for use in salt water disposal wells, injections wells (water, C02), gas lift production wells, free flowing wells, ESP production wells and rod pump wells. To perfect the Vulcan Lab’s coating properties, a series of test were ran with each coating and the results are provided.

Ferox-15 is an epoxy/novolac based coating specifically designed for oil and gas field applications. It has good overall chemical and corrosion resistance with excellent adhesion and abrasion resistance. Additionally, it also has an added layer of primer which enhances adhesion and C02 and H2S chemical resistance.
Ferox-25 is a multi-layered epoxy coating system specifically designed for oil and gas field applications. It has good chemical and corrosion resistance, good adhesion, and good abrasion resistance for use at higher temperatures. Additionally, it also has an added layer of primer which enhances adhesion and C02 and H2S chemical resistance.

VL-50 is a Phenolic base liquid coating. Designed as a coating used for I.D./O.D. applications for metal surfaces including fittings, valves with adhesion values at elevated temperatures and pressures. Optimal environments; salt water, C02 , H2S, and petroleum distillates.
VL-300 is a water base coating. Designed as a coating used for I.D./O.D. applications for metal surfaces including fittings, valves with adhesion values at elevated temperatures and pressures. Optimal environments; salt water, C02 , H2S, and petroleum distillates.
VL 400 Coating is a thin film coating that containing polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) and a high percentage of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) which are highly cross linked when applied together. PPS is an excellent polymer that provides excellent chemical resistance and abrasion resistance. PTFE is a low friction polymer for a lubricious, non stick surface with outstanding abrasion resistance along with good chemical resistance as well. The two coat system allows the coating to perform well in coefficient of friction, anti-fouling, and other harsh service environments.
