Anti corrosion tapes help prevent corrosion on steel. Corrosion happens when a refined metal is naturally converted to a more stable form. This can lead to the deterioration of the material. Corrosion often occurs when metal is exposed to water, which happens a lot in, for example, the maritime industry. But also when two different types of metal, like tubing systems, are attached to each other. This is often called Galvanic corrosion. Galvanic corrosion, also known as bimetallic corrosion, is an electrochemical process whereby one metal corrodes in preference to another metal that it is in contact with through an electrolyte.
Anti corrosion tapes prevents and protects your steel against corrosion.
Corrosion Stop Zinc Tape will prevent galvanic corrosion and protects new and existing steel parts. It can be used for bridge supports, pipelines and other marine structures. Corrosion Stop Zinc Tape is made of a high purity zinc with a high tack self-adhesive backing.
By applying our Solastape CorStop tape (by T-ISS), the tape will have a sacrificing role in the oxidation process. Instead of the two metals that are attached to each other, the CorStop tape will oxidize and so protect the two metals. The same principle is put into practice on vessels; anodes are placed on the ship’s hull. These anodes will rust instead of the hull which results in a hull that’s rust-free for a longer period of time.
The zinc layer on the tape will not be infiltrated by water or gas. Also, the tape will not age due to UV light, so there will be no corrosion from the inner layer.
T-ISS CorStop tape is available in the sizes 25 mm, 50 mm and 100 mm.
