Metallurgical and Coating Labs

Tex-Isle Supply's metallurgical lab and coating lab utilize state of the art equipment to verify the metallurgical properties of our OCTG and the performance properties of our OD and ID corrosion coatings. Our metallurgical lab verifies that all processed OCTG meets API 5CT and proprietary standards. Our coating lab ensures our protective coatings meet NACE SP0394 and SP0191 standards. Our labs are designed to support our customers' needs for destructive testing, non-destructive testing, and failure analysis, as well as our ongoing research and development.
