RG-2400® ET is a surface conversion compound utilizing mineralization technology, or the "Science of Minetics"; this compound replaces the corrosion process with a mineral formation on and into the metal creating a mineral barrier 50-200 angstroms deep into the metal surface and as time passes, the mineral layer on top of the substrate increases in thickness.
RG-2400 products are not “new” technology, it is new to the insulation industry and a breakthrough for corrosion control and prevention on piping systems, tanks and vessels under insulation. RG-2400 ET an elevated temperature non-drying gel compound easily brush/spray applied to pipes, fittings, valves, tanks and vessels. This version of RG is designed to be used on hot surfaces with service temperatures up to 350ºF. Most frequently used on dual temperature cyclical lines.
RG-2400® ET prevents corrosion from occurring, and it also stops existing corrosion from advancing on existing systems, it requires minimal (wire brush off the scale) preparation.
Installation thicknesses of 20-30 MILS allow the unique formulation to heal any subsequent breach (mechanical damage) of the mineral barrier, and the RG-2400® ET formula is so unique, that even if the vapor barrier is breached allowing moisture into the system, the RG-2400® ET will buffer the moisture to an elevated pH.
The insulation contractor applies RG-2400® ET on the pipe using PVC chemical gloves. The opacity and color of the product (blue) allows for easy site inspection of an installation. When it’s BLUE, you’re through!
RG-2400® ET is also environmentally benign, and will NOT harm the environment. RG-2400® Cleaner is also available from Polyguard; this cleaner is specifically formulated to clean tools, equipment, and hands without harmful chemicals.
