Socotherm has the answer.


Socotherm is a worldwide technological leader specialized in the application of anticorrosion and thermal insulation coatings on steel pipes for onshore and offshore operations.

From its early beginning, Socotherm has focused its efforts on obtaining solutions to complex problems, such as crossing the Andes at a height of 5.000m or laying pipelines more than 2.000m deep offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. These are regular events within Socotherm activities.

Such challenges have contributed to Socotherm prestige and recognition as a leader in the coating application field among the energy industry worldwide.
During the last years, Socotherm has exported its products to all the oil markets in the world and has participated in more than 4.000 projects for over 500 different customers.

The experience acquired in countless offshore projects in the Gulf of Mexico, North Sea, Brazil, West Adrica and South East Asia on top of the participation in almost all the onshore Latin American pipelines position Socotherm among the few companies than can offer both deep water and onshore solutions.


Socotherm has an ISO 9001 System certificated by Det Norske Veritas. Strict quality controls are performed in every step of all processes to assure products performance. This quality supervision is supported by the use of sophisticated full-scale instruments that simulate even more severe conditions than those the coatings will be exposed to during normal operation. Controls include corrosion, thermal, mechanical, hydraulic, biological and dynamic tests that may recreate different operating conditions.


Socotherm has the most complex laboratory owned by a coating contractor; this has enabled oil companies and laying contractors to modify and suit their engineering requirements to obtain significant cost reductions and maximum confidence in their large-scale investments.


Socotherm worldwide reputation is built on leading rather than on applying technological change. Based on customer's requirements, Socotherm has developed many products that later became industry benchmarks.

Socotherm is customer-driven. The toughest goals it is exposed to are seen as opportunities to help the customer succeed and drive its industry forward.
