RG-2400® NP is used on new piping systems, valves, tanks and vessels with a temperature range up to 225º F.
RG-2400® NP is an anti-corrosion gel utilizing Polyguard’s patented mineralization technology, (the "science of Minetics"); this gel replaces the corrosion process with a mineral formation on and into the metal surface creating a mineral barrier 50-200 angstroms thick. As time passes, the mineral layer on top of the substrate increases slightly in thickness. A pH in the alkaline range passivates water vapor, and the hydrophobic nature of the gel repels water.
2400® NP is not "new" technology; it is a formulation designed for the insulation industry, under insulation for NEW piping systems, tanks and vessels. It is a non-drying compound easily brush/spray applied to pipes, fittings, valves, tanks and vessels. Its’ non-skinning and non-sag properties make it a permanent solution.
RG-2400® NP prevents corrosion from occurring on new piping systems; it requires no preparation other than making sure there are no oils, dirt or rust on the piping. In addition, RG-2400 LT prevents stainless steel and copper stress crack corrosion under insulation.
The insulation contractor applies RG-2400® NP on the new pipe using PVC chemical gloves, then for even coverage remove the excess with the Patented AccuTrowel™ tool. The opacity and color of the product (purple) allows for easy site inspection of an installation. When you cannot see the pipe through the purple gel, you should have sufficient coverage. It is assumed that any new piping will not be at any temperature above or below ambient.
RG-2400® NP is also "NON-TOXIC", 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.
