RG-2400 AK is designed to be installed on hot pipes, above 100ºF.
RG-2400 AK 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 metal 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. It is a non-drying compound easily brush/spray applied to pipes, fittings, valves, tanks and vessels. This version of RG is designed to be used on in-service hot surfaces.
RG-2400 AK prevents corrosion from occurring, and it also stops existing corrosion from advancing on existing systems, it requires minimal (wire brush off the scale) preparation. In addition, RG-2400 AK prevents stainless steel and copper stress crack corrosion under insulation.
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 AK formula is so unique, that even if the vapor barrier is breached allowing moisture into the system, the RG-2400 AK will buffer the moisture to an elevated pH.
The insulation contractor applies RG-2400 AK 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 AK is also "NON-TOXIC", and will NOT harm the environment.
RG-2400 AK can also be used for application on tank chime systems and where crevice corrosion is a concern.
RG-2400 Cleaner is also available from Polyguard; this cleaner is specifically formulated to clean tools, equipment, and hands without harmful chemicals.
