We have seen a trend in the way new technology combats naturally occurring hazards. From lightning strikes to asset corrosion, businesses are providing solutions that eliminate the hazard from the equation: By ionizing the atmosphere around a facility, you can prevent lightning from striking in an area or in this case, to prevent corrosion, you actually encourage oxidation that actually hardens the protective coating.
Even though we, as an industry, understand the principles of corrosion the process we follow to protect our capital-intensive assets puts them at risk. How many times have you seen someone prep. a surface for painting one day and apply the first coat of primer the next day or after lunch? Even though we know the surface is compromised, we still make this mistake time and time again.
The technology Zirconia uses to protect your physical assets eliminates some of the problems associated with traditional asset protection methods. Zirconia’s ceramic technology offers non-toxic asset preservation that actually gets stronger as the material tries to oxidize.
If you’re a bit skeptical, I don’t blame you. Have a listen and find out how this new tech. could save you time, money and the potential for an uncontrolled release to atmosphere.
