I was reading through the blog yesterday (someone has to) when I realised that we haven't mentioned Simon's deluge test. Well, that's not quite true, we have mentioned it  - but just a mention doesn't do it justice - at the very least it needs a photo.

So here it is

The photo shows a brand new mild steel flange and pipe that have been subjected to a 20% salt-water deluge for several weeks, on a 12-hour cycle to maximise corrosion potential.

The test was undertaken some time ago but, as mentioned, I had not put any details on the blog - and it seemed like a good idea to put that right as soon as possible.

Both images are of the same substrate. On the left, salt-water flows down the pipe and around the Enviropeel encapsulation. causing the whole substrate to stream with rust. On the right, opening up the encapsulation reveals just how complete the Enviropeel protection has been. It's a pretty graphic demonstration of how incredibly good the Enviropeel system is at protecting vulnerable steel substrates.
