Enviropeel’s proprietary blend of corrosion-inhibiting sprayable thermoplastic (CIST) keeps out dust and moisture and can be applied in a wide range of settings prone to the affects corrosion.
Of the many types of corrosion, Enviropeel is specially formulated to prevent galvanic corrosion by creating a moisture-free encapsulation with slow-release corrosion-inhibiting oils that arrest corrosion at the source. Upon application, Enviropeel E170 shrinks around the substrate, creating a perfect seal to ingress.
E170 performs so well that virgin substrate encapsulated in Enviropeel, which was then exposed to more than 10,000 hours of hot salt fog testing (ASTM B117), show zero signs of corrosion after the equivalent of 100 years in a marine environment. Upon further inspection, hand-tighten bolt nuts turned as freely as they did before the test was conducted, demonstrating Enviropeel’s superior protection to corrosion in marine environments.
Furthermore, Enviropeel E170 has undergone rigorous testing of it’s performance in high-UV environments. After 9,000 hours of cyclical UV-testing, Enviropeel maintained complete integrity, while allowing for easy removal of the coating for inspection and simple reapplication of original material.
In addition to complete arrest of galvanic corrosion, Enviropeel’s unique properties and application process protects bearings from premature failure due to corrosion by contamination caused by ingress of moisture, dust, and debris.
As a leader in corrosion prevention technology, Enviropeel is proud to serve clients in multiple and diverse industries all across the globe.
Flanges and valves are complex assemblies with a far greater risk of corrosion than the pipes to which they are attached. Any structure constructed with multiple components and secured with bolts has corrosion accelerating properties built in: connecting surfaces and voids promote crevice corrosion, differing metals bring galvanic corrosion and coating damage during assembly allows corrosion into the system from the start. In a marine environment, salt water, constant moisture and unstable conditions can lead to bolts corroding in weeks and flanges failing within two years of construction. Offshore or onshore, any structure in such an environment will start to corrode at the flanges and bolts or in the crevices formed by construction, leading to compromises in safety that can only be addressed with constant maintenance or replacement.
Without adequate protection, stored or mothballed equipment deteriorates faster than when it is in use. Moisture enters the system and is retained through inactivity, moving parts corrode into immobility, seals dry out and machined surfaces become pitted and scarred. Before using Enviropeel, engineering companies repairing parts and equipment were seeing up to 45% of their repaired and stored machinery requiring rework through deterioration in storage, especially large components stored in the open air, despite protection with tape wrap and other systems. Following the introduction of Enviropeel, no matter where the machinery was stored, rework requirements were reduced to zero. Machined surfaces stayed good as new, rotating equipment functioned perfectly with nuts and bolts remaining fully serviceable and rust free.
