Rust Grip Case Studies

Oil Field Chevron Petrol Indonesia (5.4mb pdf)

Rust Grip | Enamo Grip

Chevron is facing various problems at one of their oil and gas refinery locations in Indonesia. Due to high temperatures, high humidity and lack of consistent maintenance, most of the pipelines and storage tanks are affected by corrosion problems. The location needs to be in operation for at least 10 more years and rebuilding the site is far too expensive. The site is also located at a remote area where structural maintenance is expensive and not a real option. Besides this, all surfaces are being affected by sunlight, heat, chemical substances, humidity and dirt – more >


Oil Field Off Shore HSC insulation system K12-BP GDF Suez (3.1mb pdf)

Rust Grip | HSC

Vessel was heavily corroded due to a very common problem in traditional insulation materials and systems, named corrosion under insulation (CUI). Besides this, traditional insulation materials tend to absorb moisture and lose their insulation value gradually. The HSC system that will be applied directly on to the surface will make sure this problem will not occur anymore in the future – more >


Oil Field LNG Vela Abu Dhabi (9.5mb pdf)

Rust Grip | Enamo Grip

The client ADNATCO is owned by Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC’s) marine transportation company for crude and gas shipments, primarily sent to Asia. The application took place last week in Dubai Dry Docks on two separate vessels, on the monkey islands. We are expecting a large order this year from ADNATCO to paint the entire decks of 2 vessels with Rust Grip & Enamo Grip. The parent company ADNOC conducted detailed laboratory testing confirmed that Rust Grip & Enamo Grip can outperform the traditional 3 coat system, even when Rust Grip is applied WITHOUT SANDBLASTING at around 400 micron DFT. The report is very convincing – more >

Rust Grip unable to bridge cracks in structures (70kb pdf)

Rust Grip

Rust Grip is a 0.24 permeability coating which means that it is exceptionally tight and rigid. Rust Grip dries to a 6780 psi surface tensile strength in only three weeks which again shows its’ ability to tighten across, secure and strengthen a surface. With this type of strength and tight bonding, Rust Grip does not offer any elongation found in flexible coatings as to stretch. Rust Grip can bend 180° without cracking, but in no way can it elongate without tearing or cracking open. This would mean that Rust Grip will show any developing cracks in a surface that it is applied over – more >
