Secrets under wrap [AAD16D1]

14 September 2016

Rhino Intercept Africa (Hangar 3, Stand E14) hopes to play a critical role in providing corrosion protection to equipment in storage or to be transported worldwide. The company is the sole agent for the Intercept technology developed by Lucent Technologies in the USA.

According to director Brendan Kelly, “the material is made of high surface area copper particles that are permanently bonded into a polymer compound. When a product is wrapped in Intercept, the material sets to work by permanently reacting with and neutralising corrosive gases to create a clean atmosphere or micro-environment”.

He added that there is no need to oil or preserve a component or machine in any additional traditional way, which cuts down on maintenance and processing costs.
