DURABAND® NC for Maximum Wear Protection In All Drilling Conditions
CoolBanding U.S. Pat. No. 10,267,101 B2
CoolBanding is a procedure developed by Postle Industries that protects the Internal Protective Coating (IPC) of drill pipe while hardbanding Tool Joints or Center Wear Pads with Duraband.

Protects your IPC while hardbanding Ensures correct hardness of heat affected zone (HAZ) Applied exclusively by certified CoolBanding applicators

CoolBanding is a way of hardbanding that keeps the internal temperature of the drill pipe low enough to protect the plastic coating so it does not burn. At the same time the CoolBanding procedure allows a high enough temperature of the drill pipe and tool joint for proper application of the hardbanding. It also allows proper cool down to ensure drill pipe integrity. Improper cooling can increase the hardness of the heat affected zone (HAZ) of the drill pipe to unacceptable levels and compromise the torsional integrity of the pipe. This does not happen with the CoolBanding procedure.

CoolBanding protects your IPC and during hardbanding. It maintains a Rockwell hardness under 40Rc in the heat affected zone (HAZ) to ensure torsional integrity of the drill pipe.
