Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI) is one of the industrial sector's greatest maintenance challenge, especially for the Oil & Gas Industry.
CUI studies from a petrochemical facility have shown that 40-60% of pipe maintenance costs are due to CUI and approximately 10% of the total maintenance budget is spent repairing damage from CUI.
Where the metal is hidden by insulation and cladding, corrosion process may proceed unnoticed for years – maybe until leaking occur (which can be too late).
When working with hazardous, explosive or flammable materials, CUI leaks could result in a significant impact on safety and the environment.
WR-Tech™, our revolutionary Water Repellency Technology for combating Corrosion Under Insulation, is a winner of the 2019 Materials Performance Corrosion Innovation of the Year Awards.
