Axess | Internal corrosion control
It is defined as the regular measurement of corrosivity
as it affects a good. The affected assets can be anything from a pipeline, to a concrete bridge, a large HVAC system in a building, an offshore oil and gas installation and a printed circuit in a computer.
When parts of this "good" are inaccessible
, simple methods such as visual inspection or manual measurements cannot be used. For this reason special techniques are used.
These techniques are especially useful in continuous processes where internal corrosion proceeds at a rapid rate, leading to catastrophic failure long before traditional inspection can detect it.

Armor Plate | Repair and reinforcement of pipelines
The Armor Plate system is used for the reinforcement and repair of pipes in gas and oil pipelines, gas and / or oil plants,
chemical plants, refineries, running water and small domestic service pipes.
Its application is manual, cold and in operation, and it can be applied on any pipe geometry (including curves, elbows, tees, etc.).
It is a composite material approved by the DOT
, consisting of three elements:
- an epoxy putty that restores the loss of material from the pipe by filling holes and cavities.
- a special fiberglass.
- an epoxy resin that is used to embed fiberglass.
Repairs can be carried out on pipes without the need to depressurize, whatever the climate or environmental conditions, including off-shore or underwater repairs.

Polyurethane Anticorrosive Paints
Our paints are manufactured by UNITED COATINGS in the USA under a rigorous quality control system
certified by ISO 9001 and have been tested by the ITI
laboratories in Houston, Tx-USA and SEIT in Buenos Aires - Argentina, according to ASTM and DIN standards, demonstrating excellent adhesion and impermeability
and very good performance against cathodic detachment,
high resistance to impact and the presence of chemical agents.
They are 100% solid, without bitumen and dry in minutes, being able to obtain high thicknesses of up to 1,500 microns without blasting or sagging.
At PROTAN S.A. we carry out the application by spray
(and also manually with a roller or brush) of the paint with our own GUSMER brand equipment and
we provide the application procedures
and the previous surface treatment.
The ELASTUFF 160 Polyurethane Paint is ideal for coating welded joints, sections of gas pipelines in operation, tanks, among others.
Insulating Joints for flanges
Taking into account the costs and the current environmental situation, it is essential to prevent leaks
in your transportation system.
The flange represents the most commonly problematic area, which needs to be properly sealed to prevent these leaks and must also
be cathodically isolated to prevent current losses that cause excessive corrosion and eventual metal breakage.

Cap designed for the anticorrosive protection of cuproaluminothermic welds.
Provides excellent corrosion protection. Its characteristics and remarkable behavior on all types of surfaces make it easy, reliable and safe to apply.
It is composed of an upper plastic sheet, formed by an igloo-shaped dome, and an entry channel for the cable. It has a corrosion inhibiting
compound on the inside of the dome, soft enough to mold itself around the uneven surface to be protected, completely covering it safely.

LINEAR SPL™-ANODE SYSTEMS
MATCOR’s high-quality, proprietary, flexible, linear SPL™-Anodes simplify the design of any cathodic protection system and can be used to protect a
variety of structures, including tank bottoms, cables in ducts, pipelines, and structures in congested areas.
The anodes are typically designed for a minimum of 30 years of trouble-free operation.
SPL™-Anodes have built-in electrical redundancy and are manufactured with multiple anode-to-internal header cable connections to protect against
uneven anode consumption, which leads to premature failure.
The linear design is an ideal cathodic protection system for existing, aging bare or poorly coated pipelines. The anode is placed parallel to and
in close proximity with the pipeline to ensure an even distribution of current. This cost-effective approach eliminates over and under potential
problems typically found with distributed anode systems in these applications.
MATCOR’s SPL™-Anodes are an excellent choice for protecting the bottom of above ground storage tanks (ASTs). Manufactured in assemblies of concentric circles
with a lead wire at each end for tank bottoms, the SPL™-Anode rings can be used to protect the outermost bottoms of new tanks in contact with the soil,
the internal bottoms of double bottom tanks, and the outermost bottoms of existing tanks.
Proprietary dual-feed multi-loop design
Protects against uneven anode consumption
Provides redundancy in case of third-party damage
Available in wide range of output capacities
Manufactured to custom lengths
Available in four configurations
Use MATCOR SPL™ anodes for: storage tank bottoms, pipelines, buried structures and concrete applications.
