HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HoldTight Solutions Inc., one of the most trusted names for surface preparation in the coating industry, announced today the release of its latest product HT365, a new thin-film coating that can be applied to blasted surfaces, preserving the quality of the prepared surface and preventing flash rust and corrosion for up to one year. This new product, featuring the latest nanotechnology advancements in corrosion prevention, is the latest in a series of product introductions that have fueled HoldTight’s growth in the surface preparation market.
HT365’s versatility and effectiveness set it apart from other corrosion prevention coatings, proving to lower maintenance costs and extend the life of metal surfaces. Crews can easily apply the product to any blasted substrate by brushing, rolling, spraying or dipping. HT365 sets and cures in as little as five minutes post-application. HT365 requires minimal upkeep after application, allowing crews to prepare surfaces for further coating far in advance of anticipated project completion dates, saving time, labor resources and logistic costs.
“We are committed to accelerating the adoption of surface protection solutions with innovative products like HT365,” said Ken Rossy, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at HoldTight. “There is boundless potential for this product across a multitude of industries and we are thrilled about the favorable responses we have received from initial use cases with both customers and distributors.”
HT365 has been proven in multiple real-world case studies conducted in Houston, Texas, an area known for high precipitation, humidity, salinity, UV exposure and temperature swings. In 2015, a metal reclamation company reported that HT365 provided nine months of continuous rust and corrosion prevention on unfinished machined steel frac blocks. Also, in 2015, a blow-out preventer (BOP) manufacturer reported up to 85 days of protection for BOP components stored in an outdoor facility exposed to rain, salt water air, UV light and temperature swings. In February 2017, a valve manufacturer reported 15 months of continuous protection from rust and corrosion after dipping its components in HT365 before storing them in a partially temperature-controlled indoor warehouse.
Additionally, HT365 can be conveniently and rapidly removed by a high-pressure wash fortified with HoldTight 102, to the exposed surface for another 48-72 hours before coating. This eliminates the need for additional blasting to restore a rusted surface. Many competing anti-corrosive surface treatments are lanolin, grease or oil-based which require substantial labor time to apply and remove. These compounds frequently protect surfaces for only up to two months, necessitating frequent re-application.
