In order to protect carbon steel components susceptible to surface corrosion
or rust, all Caproco carbon steel parts are subjected to an anti-rust
preventative treatment. This chemical bath process imbeds a coating of
phosphate crystals to form an electrically inert blanket, smothering anodic
and cathodic differences between peaks and valleys, and other surface
irregularities. It is a heavyweight absorption coating in the range of
1000-2500 mg/ft2, and when combined with a paint or rust preventive oil
covering, provides rust and corrosion resistance for extended periods.
Caproco can provide a wide range of protective coatings for components
that will be exposed to particularly corrosive environments. Coatings
can be provided to either the client’s or Caproco’s specifications.
Coating applications are not limited to only Caproco fittings, but are
also available for associated pipe spooling.
