The coating protects many metal substrates (like carbon/stainless steel, copper, aluminium and cast iron) exposed to harsh outdoor conditions, with an extensive record of use for the mothballing and layup of equipment, protection of shipments, and preservation of spares.
The coating is also available for application in complex, sealed spaces—where a greater concentration of vapor inhibitor is beneficial.
An extra dose of the vapor-phase corrosion inhibitor (VpCI) vaporizes from the coating, fills the enclosed space, and adsorbs on hard-to-reach surfaces. This is helpful on applications such as pipe internals, where it can be challenging to thoroughly cover all substrates, the company explains.
The coating is ultraviolet-light resistant and passes up to 1,500 h of ASTM B1171 salt spray testing, applied at 50.8-76.2 μm on carbon steel. The cured film is stable up to 200 °C, and it can be easily applied by spray or brush.
