Corrosion Control



2005-02-28
Modern pipe corrosion control allows long-lasting impermeable coating and remote monitoring to ensure total round-the-clock protection. Usual problems with pipes include deterioration (in the form of rust) and VOC (volatile organic compound) emissions, also some old pipes are made from lead, which also create dangerous emissions.

VOC penetration can produce a variety of problems, mainly Sick Building Syndrome, which can lead to medical complaints (nausea, headaches, dizziness etc) for people in the building. This problem is generally alleviated through the use of impermeable coating. As well as stopping VOCs, coating treatments also prevent rust corrosion and general deterioration for around five years.

Industry and governmental regulations are in place with regard to gas pipes, and these are set to become more stringent in order to ensure safety.
