With saltwater as one of the worst agents of corrosion, Cor-Pro Systems provide industries in Houston and other Gulf Coast areas with unparalleled solutions to marine corrosion protection for their facilities and equipment.

Why Is Marine Corrosion Protection Important?

Saltwater is one of the worst known corrosion agents. The chemical composition of saltwater makes it an effective electrolyte, easily corroding all types of materials exposed to it. With most marine-related industries relying on steel for their materials, companies rely on proper marine corrosion protection services to avoid damage to their equipments.

All materials are subject to gradual wear and tear. However, some agents such as seawater rapidly increase the rate of corrosion in materials such as steel which in turn, affects marine industries such as shipping companies and offshore plants. Not only does marine corrosion cost industries billions of dollars, it’s also a health and safety hazard for people as well as the environment.

By using only superior methods in managing marine corrosion, industries can save up to 35% of losses due to corrosion. Aside from financial savings, correct application of anti-corrosion methods can reduce indirect losses due to corrosion.
