Geo-Drill Details Published in Corrosion Science Journal

Thu, 17 November, 2022

A paper providing details of the Geo-Drill project has been published in the Corrosion Science journal.

Available to view online as an open access document, the paper was co-written by Gifty Oppong Boakye, Erlend Oddvin Straume, Danyil Kovalov, and Sigrun Nanna Karlsdottir of the University of Iceland, Faculty of Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Computer Science.

Titled, ’Wear-reducing Nickel-Phosphorus and Graphene Oxide-based Composite Coatings: Microstructure and Corrosion behaviour in High Temperature Geothermal Environment,’ the paper details how polymer coatings modified with graphene oxide (GO) and duplex electroless nickel-phosphorus (Ni-P) with polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) were investigated for their corrosion behaviour in simulated high-temperature geothermal environments with and without H2S and CO2 gases for geothermal applications.
