Lubricity/Anti-Galling

Friction Wears Down Profits

Southwest Impreglon is home to the brand coatings – Impreglon and Fluorolon®.

It’s as simple as that. Abrasion. Galling. Metal-to-metal everyday use. Long-term exposure – on land and offshore. At Southwest Impreglon, we know how destructive friction and wear can be on expensive and critical drilling and production equipment. The friction/anti-galling coatings we provide are critical and we know how to save your equipment and your bottom line.
