Bodycote Opens New Surface Technology Facility in Houston, Texas

Bodycote, the world’s largest thermal processing services provider, has announced that the company will open a new surface technology plant in Houston, Texas.

The new plant, scheduled to open during the third quarter of 2012, will enable Houston’s large oil and gas market to access Bodycote’s specialist expertise in high velocity oxy fuel (HVOF) spraying of tungsten carbide and the K-Tech® family of thermochemically-formed ceramic treatments, which are particularly suited to treat components operating in severe service applications.

The new plant complements Bodycote’s heat treatment facilities in Texas, and the surface technology facility in neighbouring Arkansas, which provides ceramic treatments. Bodycote has a total of 43 facilities in the US providing the full range of Bodycote’s services.
