Corrosion problems in marine refrigeration and air conditioning systems are severe and are not isolated to sea going vessels. Coastal and marine influenced environments are also subject to the impact of salt water. Airborne salt and salt spray are insidious. The thin film of corrosion or oxide film that often acts as a barrier to further corrosion can be destabilized in the presence of saltwater or airborne salt causing pitting corrosion.
Seawater and airborne salt are an efficient electrolyte that encourage galvanic corrosion between dissimilar metals. Galvanic corrosion occurs in heat exchangers, especially in water-cooled condensers, line valves and instruments such as pressure gauges, and flow meters, which may be made of dissimilar materials.
Ship-2-Shore dielectric anti corrosion films are highly resistant to salt water, salt spray and airborne salt, displace moisture and stick to metal forming an effective and long lasting barrier to prevent rust, corrosion and electrolysis. They do not attract dust and dirt, nor become gummy, can be applied to damp surfaces and are effective within a wide range of temperature. Long lasting anti corrosion protection for insulated pipe and wire, electrical connections and components, electronics, control panels, circuit boards, lighting, motors and machinery.
Ship-2-Shore PLID Thin Film ( 40,000v dielectric ) - Makes an excellent thin, extreme penetrating, all purpose anti-corrosion, anti-seize and high pressure lubricant film. Ideal for electrical, electronics, circuit boards and mechanical. Float Coat PLID for difficult to access cofferdam voids, void between double hulls, tanks, rudder void, keel, etc.
Apply with aerosol spray, brush, mop, airless paint sprayer or floatation method. 1 litre covers up to 100 sq ft. Apply to bare metal, over paint or other hard coatings. Can be applied to damp surfaces.
Ship-2-Shore Industrial Thick Film ( 8920v dielectric ) - "thick" heavy duty, anti-corrosion, high pressure lubricant wet film coating. Ideal for long lasting corrosion protection under difficult, extreme conditions and just about anything else. Suitable for workboats, barges, ships, anchor chain, wire rope, offshore structures, deck equipment, electrical, vehicle corrosion preventive undercoat, etc.
Apply with brush, cloth, mop or airless paint sprayer. 1 litre (1 quart) covers up to 50 sq ft. Apply to bare metal, over paint or other hard coatings. Can be applied to damp surfaces.
