SMP responds to customer demand by introducing 734
In response to OEM demand for a material that is cost competitive, high strength and gives excellent corrosion resistance, SMP have redeveloped their standard Staballoy material. By adding a ESR melt step to the manufacturing process the corrosion and fatigue properties are enhanced, whilst attaining a minimum yield strength of 140 ksi. 734 is now successfully used in bottom hole assemblies by a major oilfield service OEM. This is a great example of how SMP works collaborative with customers and end-users to find solutions for the most challenging issues.
