New slick lines brochure

A new slick lines brochure encompasses product information and gives an overview of the range of lines available along with technical information and data, including product innovations such as the recent introduction of bright surface slick lines.

Slick lines combine high corrosion resistance and high mechanical strength with uniform tensile properties.

Demands on equipment increase as underwater exploration sees an increase in deepwater projects in more remote locations. This firm's ability to produce alloyed stainless steel wire with the capabilities of withstanding severely corrosive environments along with high pressures and temperatures facilitates such exploration, the brochure notes.

Detailed are the new bright finish slick lines that offer greater life expectancy than traditional matt finish lines, with tests showing that the product provides better fatigue resistance by more than 15%. This results in fewer lines having to be replaced, offering operational cost savings, the brochure points out.
