RG-2400® Corrosion Control Gel

RG 2400 on bundled pipe

RG-2400® Corrosion Control Gel was developed to solve the problem of Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI) and is a solution for many hidden corrosion problems.

RG-2400 is different from anything you've seen. RG-2400 is applied as a gel - and instead of curing or hardening, it remains in gel form. Within time, chemical elements in the gel react with elements in the steel surface. This reaction forms an ultra-thin glasslike mineral surface. This surface, along with pH adjusting chemistry in the gel, is what protects the steel underneath from corrosion.

Features & Benefits

  • RG-2400 will help prevent corrosion on new metal
  • RG-2400 will help stop existing corrosion on existing metal
  • RG-2400 is not a paint or primer
  • RG-2400 creates a polymerized di-silicate lattice with existing metal oxides
  • Creates a mineral lattice 50-200 angstroms thick onto and into metal surface
  • Buffers any moisture that migrates through the gel

RG-2400 works best on corrosion you can't see:

RG-2400 has been used for numerous applications including insulated transmission pipelines, insulated valves and fittings, insulated tanks, insulated process piping, bundles pipe, ammonia systems and chime crevice at tank bottoms.

RG-2400 got its start by solving critical corrosion problems:

The U.S. Navy found its operations hindered by watertight doors frozen by hidden corrosion, and by critical steel cables weakened by crevice corrosion. (Click for details)

Oil and gas producers north of the Arctic Circle became concerned about potential environmentally damaging spills caused by corrosion in Annular Well Casings and under insulation. (Click for details)

Food Manufacturers, who use refrigerated processing in their operations, worried about process shutdowns and leaks from corroded Ammonia Refrigeration lines. With these lines, leaks can be life threatening, environmentally damaging, and extremely costly. (Click for details)
