INTERCEPT Technology™ is a corrosion protection method which, for over 20 years in numerous applications, has proven its long lasting effectiveness in extreme conditions.
The technology was born from the restoration and protection efforts on the Statue of Liberty in New York. The technology was developed by AT&T Bell Laboratories, later patented worldwide by AT&T Bell Labs and additionally by Lucent Technologies (Alcatel Lucent).
In principle, INTERCEPT® is bound to a polymer matrix to make it a reactive barrier.
These particles essentially react with elements that create and promote corrosion, which are present in the atmosphere. Salts, sulphur compounds, ozone, nitrous oxides and other so called “corrosive gases” or atmospheric pollutants are found in every environment worldwide in various concentrations.
Corrosion INTERCEPT® permanently reacts with and neutralizes these corrosive gases creating a cleaned atmosphere, a micro-environment, which protects materials inside it against corrosion and degradation caused by these corrosive, reactive gases. The atmospheric moisture or humidity that migrates through the packaging will also have these corrosive gases neutralized so that it cannot add or promote corrosion.
Intercept Technology is oil free, meaning you do not need to oil or coat components before encapsulating.
INTERCEPT’s corrosion protection function has been confirmed through independent testing using recognised and validated standards, however the 20 years of worldwide shipments and storage projects is what has really proven INTERCEPT’s unique and effective performance in numerous cases after cases.
The guarantees and liability coverage provided for the technology far exceed other known technologies and go far beyond the usual standards.
INTERCEPT® has no out-gassing of volatile chemicals (VOCs) or any volatiles, it is fully recyclable, meets all occupational safety requirements and is not harmful to people, even in direct contact, nor harmful to the environment.
