Posted by admin on April 16, 2019 in Product information

At T-ISS we offer a wide selection of varying safety- and protection tapes. As you may have noticed, we offer several tapes that all have a different, unique purpose. These tapes are all designed to prevent, product, mark, or stick to objects. In this article we would like to explain the properties and differences between all the SOLAS Tapes we offer at T-ISS, and show you which tapes to use in certain cases.

Categories:

– Anti-corrosion tapes (CorStop, RustStop)

– Anti-leak / splashing tapes (SprayStop, SprayControl, PipeRepair)

– Insulation tapes (HeatStop, DripStop)

– Marking tapes (Retro Reflective, Reflective Zebra, SlipStop, Floor, LightLine)

– Additional tapes (Foam, HatchCover)

 

The purpose of T-ISS CorStop tape

Category: Anti-corrosion tapes

The first product in our range of anti-corrosion tapes is our T-ISS CorStop tape, which is available in the sizes 25 mm, 50 mm and 100 mm. The product works as follows; when two different types of metals, for example tubing systems, are attached to each other, it is very likely rust will arise between the two. By applying T-ISS CorStop tape, the tape will have a sacrificing role in the oxidation process. Instead of the two metals that are attached to each other, the CorStop tape will oxidize and so protect the two metals. The same principle is put into practice on vessels; anodes are placed on the ship’s hull. These anodes will rust instead of the hull which results in a hull that’s rust-free for a longer period of time.

When should I use T-ISS CorStop tape?

• Fixing steel structures together but do not want the galvanic corrosion

• Protect structures against galvanic corrosion using a sacrificing product

 

The purpose of T-ISS RustStop tape

Category: Anti-corrosion tapes

T-ISS RustStop tape consists of three main items, the base being a specially designed bandage. During the production process this bandage is processed with two more items; a high-quality rust-resistant mixture between oil and grease. Combining all these items results in RustStop tape. Tubing systems or other structures that are sensitive to rust can simply be wrapped with RustStop tape. Due to the oil and grease mixture in the tape the oxidation process won’t have a chance to start, which means the tubing or structure in question will be protected.
