Corrosion under fireproofing (CUF) is a unique surface treatment technique that vastly improves flame resistance characteristics while offering additional, specially formulated protection against corrosive agents. Materials such as carbon steel can be severely damaged by corrosive attacks, leading to structural instability, impeded performance, and a reduced life span.
CUF treatments help businesses optimize costs while boosting workplace safety and protecting the integrity of carbon steel materials and stored products. Oxidation is a major problem in the chemical processing, oil and gas, subsea, and petrochemical industries, and at G&C Coatings, we are committed to helping customers overcome the practical challenges posed by corrosive environments.
Corrosion under fireproofing techniques were first developed in the 1950s, with technologies reaching current levels of maturity in the early 1970s. Research and development companies began conducting extensive external stress corrosion cracking tests, determining that additional surface insulation created an effective barrier against oxidation and its complications.
Today, the expert technicians at G&C Coatings deploy a wide range of cost-effective corrosion under fireproofing treatments that deliver lasting benefits to our partners and clients. You can count on us to help you select the ideal CUF treatment for your intended application, and we are happy to discuss your needs in detail to ensure your full satisfaction.
