The development and implementation of technologies for the protection of threaded joints of oil and gas pipes, providing a guaranteed cycle of make-up-breakout and increase corrosion resistance, is an urgent task. In the paper, studies were carried out to study the corrosion resistance ofcoatings formed by the cladding method with a flexible tool. Multilayer coatings from metals and alloys of copper, zinc, aluminum, magnesium, chromium and nickel were studied. Studies of the corrosion resistance of the coatings were carried out in a KST-2 salt fog chamber according to GOST 9.308–85. The total duration of the tests was 192 hours. The concentration of the water-salt NaCl solution was 5% in accordance with GOST 9.905–2007. As a result of the tests, it was found that uncoated samples have the least corrosion resistance (the first centers of corrosion appeared on their surfaces after 8 hours). Also, single-layer coatings of brass (L63), copper (M1), bronze (BrOTsS5-5-5) did not pass the test. The total corrosion area was more than 70 % with a test duration of 48 hours. Corrosion resistance of samples with coatings of Al, Mg, composition of Al (50 %) and Ni (50 %) was 176 hours of testing. The following multilayer coatings passed the test: composition of Al (50 %) – Zn (50 %), Cr + Al, Cr + Al + polymer, Cr + composition of Al (50 %) – Ni (50 %), Cr + composition of Al (50 %) – Zn (50 %) + Cu. It has been determined that to protect the surface of threaded joints of tubing from corrosion, it is preferable to use multilayer coatings of Cr + alloy of Al (50 %) – Zn (50 %) + Cu. This coating, in addition to providing corrosion protection, can improve the antifriction properties of coatings due to an additional layer of copper.
