Oil and gas investment casting is used in the transportation, manufacturing, and energy industries for refining, storing, and transferring natural gas and petroleum products. Components applied in the oil and gas industry must be long-lasting and composed of materials that are resistant to chemical and environmental deterioration.  Cobalt-based alloys, stainless steel, and other casting materials are used to produce high-quality components with wear resistance, corrosion resistance, and high strength for demanding applications.
