Protect and Preserve

Metal Storage

Short or long term Storage and Preservation of equipment is now cost effective with the ability to use Oxifree’s thermoplastic coating, TM198.

Stored or prepositioned stocks of equipment and material on ships, offshore oil & gas installations and land locations around the world can be severely degraded by corrosion with industries spending billions of dollars annually to address corrosion prevention and mitigation of these assets. Typically it is estimated that 31% of the overall maintenance costs are corrosion related and as much as one third of these costs could be reduced through effective corrosion prevention and mitigation.


The primary method of storage of prepositioned assets is in humidity controlled storage facilities which is both costly and in many circumstances just not practical. These assets are still required to be protected during the transportation between manufacturer and point of storage and delivery to location at which time the preventative system will have to be disposed off, typically at an addition cost.

The HSE lead jet fire prevention plan involved removing any likelihood of flange material integrity breakdown and gas exposure by subjecting specified flanges, valves and unions to Oxifree TM198 coating – within a defined budget.
