A ship, regardless of size and cargo she is designed to carry is a complex metal structure and operates in extreme hostile corrosion conditions. A proactive corrosion control plan is critical to upkeep the asset value, maximize its productive life and safe guard people from corrosion induced safety hazards.

Salt Water and Brines systems - Closed circuit heat exchange systems, pipelines, ballast tanks and process applications where salt water and brine is used poses a major challenge from highly corrosive chlorides and dissolved halogens. Our specially formulated water soluble product for sea water and brine applications is effective even when used in lower dosages.

During Vessel Operation - Most challenging areas to protect from corrosion during the operations is maintenance of main deck, cargo holds, ballast tanks, lubricating and hydraulic oils besides load bearing chains and wire ropes, heat exchangers, sea/fresh water pipelines and tanks systems.

During Mothballing & Cold Layup – Degreasing, de-rusting and preservation of various equipment on the main deck, pipelines, hoses, cables, wires, tanks, oil sumps, engine enclosures, electric and electronic enclosures and contacts, heat exchangers and living areas from mold and mild dew.


Solution Suite - Our corrosion inhibitor formulations and preservation methods can be applied right from the ship design to building stages, and while in operation or during the temporary layups.

  • ⇒ Degreaser & Rust Cleaner – Cargo holds, deck, pipelines, tanks and other rusted areas
  • ⇒ Neutralizers – Preparation of surfaces after de-rusting to receive protective coatings
  • ⇒ Vapor Capsules – Protection for sealed or enclosed spaces and equipment boxes
  • ⇒ Oil Additive – lubricating oil gear, tanks and other mechanical assemblies
  • ⇒ Water Additive – Tanks and flushing of various pipeline systems
