CASE HISTORY SPOTLIGHT: Case History #618: Corrosion Protection of Guy-Wire Clamps

A corrosive environment of strong wind and blowing sand near the ocean led to corrosion on guy-wire clamps anchoring a cell tower in Brazil. The solution was to brush off loose rust, clean the clamps with VpCI®-418, and coat them with VpCI®-368, a wax-like, removable coating. This will be an important step to mitigate future corrosion in such a severe environment and thus prolong the service life of the critical components that keep the cell tower standing safely.
