WR-Tech is a revolutionary binder technology that coats each individual fiber of our ProRox stone wool insulation with an inorganic, hydrophobic additive during the production process. Our patent-pending solution makes the insulation five times more water repellent (at 482°F/250°C) than standard EN-compliant stone wool, even after heating and aging.
This makes WR-Tech the most effective solution to help mitigate CUI - a fact recognized by NACE International’s Materials Performance Magazine, which awarded the technology a prestigious 2019 Corrosion Innovation of the Year Award. WR-Tech was one of 10 technologies out of more than 50 nominees to receive the coveted award, thanks to its growing track record of significantly advancing corrosion control.
A total CUI solution
WR-Tech was first successfully launched on ROCKWOOL’s ProRox mandrel wound pipe sections, where it quickly proved its added value in combatting CUI in several applications (see cases). Engineers are upgrading their specifications, while contractors and installers are frequently applying this solution to both new-build and maintenance projects.
With WR-Tech as part of ProRox MA 961 mat (wrap), complete pipeline systems—including bends—can now be protected from the hazards of CUI. The result: safer plant operations, reduced environmental impact and lower total maintenance costs.
