ARCOR® has designed and manufactured high performance epoxy coatings and metal rebuilding compounds since 1983. Having offices are in Boston, Massachusetts and New Orleans, Louisiana. In Australia and in addition to the sale of our epoxies, we also provide full installation services. We are capable of providing turn-key application for any project, large or small, located anywhere in the country. We also can provide supervision and training for your personnel or your local contractors.
All ARCOR® products are designed to be free of solvents. This allows for safe application in all confined spaces and provides for a much faster cure than traditional solvented epoxies allowing for a more rapid turnaround of application projects. Faster turnaround means less downtime for critical components.
ARCOR® has developed a plural component spray system which allows our coatings to be spray applied without the addition of solvents. This brings the advantages of our solvent free epoxy technology to large scale projects with the increased efficiencies of spray application verses hand application.
ARCOR® continually modifies its product offerings to bring the latest in epoxy technology to its customers. We focus on the most rigorous, highest performance raw materials to find the best in chemical, heat and abrasion resistance. Our products are custom designed for specific aggressive industrial uses particularly in immersion environments of saltwater, acids and caustics.
ARCOR® coatings are used extensively for repair and lining of components in many industrial areas including:
We have an extensive list of applications throughout the world including nuclear power facilities in the U.S., Russia, Ukraine, China, Taiwan and Armenia. In fossil power facilities we have installed systems in the U.S., Canada, Russia, Thailand, India, Philippians, England, Belgium, Argentina, Brazil, and Venezuela. We have extensive installations in the Marine industry including over 300 vessels for the U.S. Navy including condensers on several nuclear aircraft carriers and submarines.
The ProSleaveTM Wellhead Protection System is the only practical solution for erosion control in wellheads. The hot tap feature of the ProSleaveTM allows operators
to retrofit at-risk producing wells with very little downtime and without killing production.
The patented system enables safe and quick installation, retrieval and replacement of the erosion resistant, high performance ceramic sleave. The purely mechanical nature of the system avoids spark concerns in the hazardous area zone immediately around gas wells.
The ProSleaveTM has been designed and built for Queensland coal seam gas wells by a local company with decades of experience in wellhead and gathering system engineering. It fits seamlessly into standard single and dual annulus wellheads.
The ProSleaveTMis installed by factory trained technicians highly experienced in Queensland field operations and individually certified by ProSleave Pty Ltd.
