Seawater Corrosion Inhibitor
Metal corrosion in seawater desalination systems include both general and localized corrosion. Both bring great harm to the system/ service life of seawater desalination equipment and safe operation of the system.
Corrosion is known to be a problem normally associated with material deterioration in the field of oil and gas, construction, and other engineering fields. Mild steel find uses in most structural shapes such as beams, bars and pipes. Due to the level of the damage caused by corrosion in various engineering fields, there is the need to retard the corrosion rate. Corrosion in the seawater leads to significant economic losses, with loss of production, product, efficiency and growing product contamination. Heavy corrosion in the seawater leads to catastrophic major accidents, such as leakage of toxic substances, causing environmental pollution, endangering people's health.
Corrosion inhibitors have been in use for several years and the most familiar examples of their applications are in paints and coatings on metals where nitrate, chromate, phosphate, benzoates, borates and oxides are incorporated. It is known that inhibitors could function in several ways to control corrosion activity by adsorption of the film onto the surface of a corroding material, thereby inducing the formation of a thick corrosion product, or by changing the characteristics of the environment resulting in reduced aggressiveness.
Corrosion Inhibitor for Sea Water or Hydro-testing Corrosion Inhibitors are special formulations ensuring prevention of corrosion on mild and carbon steel (both low and high carbon) in waters rich with chloride and fluoride. This film forming compound formed resists corrosion by repulsion technology and oxygen scavenging. It inhibits the formation of corrosive acids such as hydrochloric and hydrobromic acid along with prevention of oxidative corrosion.
Key Features and Benefits

Proper human safety products such as splash goggles, lab coat, vapour respirator, NIOSH approved gloves and boots should be worn while handling and applying chemicals. Splashes on the skin should be washed off with water immediately. In case of splashing into the eyes, flush them with fresh water and obtain medical attention. Should not be injected.
Should be stored in original containers away from heat, direct sunlight. Store in a cool dry place. Please refer label and SDS for details.
