» RYCOTE System is an Environmentally Friendly Plating Technology

RYCOTE Plating System is an environmentally friendly plating technology that offers enhanced performance. It is a known fact that the global cost of corrosion can be estimated to be US$2.5 trillion per year, reducing corrosion in any circumstance will also increase service life of couplings and adaptors, reducing downtime from unplanned maintenance and ultimately saving you money. This is why RYCO has introduced our corrosion resistant plating – RYCOTE.
