Salt, water and moisture normally cause corrosion. Normally.
On the open sea, the conditions are extreme for any material. The threat of corrosion and ingress of moisture were key factors behind the decision to install WrapTec. Because WrapTec is 100 % watertight, UV-resistant and extremely resilient, its advantages over a conventional metal solution are especially significant in this context.
